Hey bloggie friends!
I am writing this post because I am absolutely STUMPED! I plan social studies for my team, and we have to teach what we call “Notable Figures” next. Essentially, these are good citizens that we have to talk about with our first graders.
Here are the people that the state of Texas requires we talk about with our kiddos:
- Francis Scott Key
- Eleanor Roosevelt
- Sam Houston
The other people we have already covered with our inventors unit, President’s Day or Martin Luther King Jr, Day.
Here is where you come in… I need your help to give me some ideas of how to make learning about these people engaging and interesting to my First Graders. Usually I am pretty good about thinking outside of the box or pulling in different structures to spice up the learning, but I really am stumped this time! Please leave me a comment with any idea you have no matter how small you think it might be!
But, wait… there’s more! (Can you tell I’ve seen a couple of infomercials lately? Hehe!) If you leave a comment about what I could do for these lessons, I will send you any one thing from my TpT store for FREE! All you need to do is leave your comment, leave your email, and tell me your choice of a FREE item. If you wouldn’t mind waiting a few weeks for your FREE item, you could chose my inventors unit or addition/subtraction game pack that I will be working on. I just can’t promise that you will get those very soon… I haven’t been finding much extra time lately!
Please leave me a comment, I’d really appreciate it!
