REMEMBERING THE BRAVE….CHILDREN

Hello guys, it’s me Jenny.  I was thinking about Memorial Day and all those who have protected us in America with their own lives.  Wow, I appreciate them and I really love them.  We can talk to each other and go places because of them.

I want you to look at the picture below.  It’s of some kids just like you.  They lived in 1865.  The one holding the flag is in the lead and they are honoring, saying ‘Thank You’ to some soldiers who died a long time ago.  Now, you know that kids in every age can be good patriots, too.  Just like you.  Ask  mom and dad about Memorial Day if you need to.  They’ll tell you that it’s a time when the entire country remembers men and women who fought in wars for our great country so that we can be free.  Do you want to honor them?  Then make it the best life you can and help others.  Talk to you soon.

DON’T FORGET TO REMEMBER WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED!

Hi Guys,

Well, it won’t be long until the Summer vacation is here.  How many of you did great in school?  What I mean is how many of you got A’s and  B’s in  your classes.  I hope all of you did.  But I want to tell you something, please, please, please take time and get to the Library where  you can check out at least one book on let’s say, social studies and read it, so that you’ll be able to keep up when you get back in school.  Here’s a little quiz for you all.  If you need to, ask Mom and Dad or big brother or big sister to help you with it.  Send the answers back to me in the comment section below and I’ll check it for you.

  1. What city do  you live in?
  2. How old is the city that you live in? (you can find out this answer at the Library)
  3. What state do you live in?
  4. What county do you live in?
  5. Do you like the Library?
