Constitution Week Fun

Well, we just finished our annual Constitution Week festivities.  All week we learned about important events leading up to the founding of our country and some important US symbols.  It was great fun and everyone learned so much.  We ended the week with our Family Follies event.  We had most families come and see the students present their projects, perform the Pledge of Allegiance in sign language, and a skit on the history of the Star Spangled Banner. Afterward, we enjoyed some patriotic snacks.

On Constitution Day, September 18, our class honored the signing of the Constitution at 1:00 by a Ringing of the Bells Ceremony.  Each student in our class spread out throughout the school with a bell.  At 1:00 we rang the bells for one minute. Much of the school came and listened to the ringing of these bells.  It was a very touching experience.

Each of us brought a bell to ring.

We stood all over the school.

Ringing the bells so all students can hear for one minute.

We showed our patriotism to family and friends by learning about the founding of our country and ringing the bells.  We also say the Pledge of Allegiance every school morning, standing straight and tall with our hand over our heart.

What are some things you do to show your patriotism?

    • Thanks, Xander. I enjoy creating things using technology. There are a lot of sites on the internet that help you make creative things. This year we will be learning about them so you can do amazing things. What are some things you would like to create using the computer?

  1. Great job! I really enjoyed being apart of this day learning so much about our country from you all, meeting you & your families and eating all those delicious red, white & blue snacks. I also LOVE that I can stay connected with your class during the school day through this blog and see all the wonderful things you are learning from Mrs. Fraher. When Addy comes home and share things about her day, sometimes I am able to tell her first that I already know. Shhhh… please don’t tell her, I like her believing her mom has special powers. 😉

    • Thank you for your comment. I appreciate the support. I will definitely not tell her-your secret is safe with me. I enjoyed having all of the families together as well. Family Follies are some of my favorite times of the school year.
