Week - At - A - Glance
Wow! We did a ton this week. I'm sure you have heard the kiddos talking about their pioneer fates this week. We had 2 wagon trains that survived the harsh conditions, injuries, accidents, and distance. We had 2 wagon trains that were so close, and just didn't make it. Seriously, the reactions of the kids cheering was priceless. Unfortunately, it was just as devastating to those who didn't make it (and my heart breaks for them when they get upset). From this unit, kids should be able to tell you that Missouri was the largest starting point for the pioneers. Missouri was important because of our trading posts and starting points to the west. They can tell you about the difficulties pioneers faces, the advantages and disadvantages for traveling in groups, and the reason pioneers would risk their lives to move. We did a great deal of writing throughout this unit, and I will return the journals after break. Now the kids are asking what we get to learn about next; it is so fun to see the excitement to learn!
This week we will have our winter party on Friday at 2:05pm. Thank you Angela Price for planning!!
