I hope you all are having a wonderful Mother's Day! It was so nice to watch the students draw portraits of you and to write the All About Mom activity. I hope they served you breakfast in bed as I suggested!

Shockingly, we only have 8 school days left!

Social Studies

This week we will learn about Helen Keller. We will read Helen Keller, by Jane Sutcliffe in class and will complete biography activities and a timeline. We will watch a brainpop video early in the week and will end the unit by watching The Miracle Worker from 1962!

Everyone will learn how to spell " doll, cake, and water" using the manual alphabet the way Helen did. We will discuss the obstacles Helen faced as a child and as an adult. We will discuss some of the challenges she overcame and how she became a celebrated author and activist.

Experiment….Students will have to fingerspell "water" when they want water.

We will have cake on Friday. Students can have a small piece if they can fingerspell "cake"

We will learn how to read the Braille alphabet.
