We began learning about communities and how they work. Students started with looking up information in their Social Studies textbook and becoming "experts" in the community that they sit in. The community worked together to read and answer questions and then we shared with the other communities how different and similar their community is from the other communities. The students did a fantastic job working collaboratively and sharing out with the other communities.
What a great day we had for our annual Freedom Walk to commemorate September 11th. Our service men and woman have sacrificed so much for our country, since that terrible day. I am so thankful for all that the military does to protect us each and every day. I hope that children continue to learn about September 11th, so that we never forget what happened to our country. For Heroes Elementary, we commemorate the day with the National Anthem, Pledge of Allegience, and then our walk around the school. Parents come out to walk with their children and to share this special day with each other.
