Handwriting Without Tears, the handwriting program recommended by Blaze's occupational therapist, is sponsoring a chance for children to write to the new president of the United States. They are collecting handwritten letters of advise for President Obama, written by children in kindergarten through fourth grade, which will be hand-delivered to the White House on January 23rd.

We will probably be using this in a couple weeks. We're just now introducing European settlers into our American History lessons. Because Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday, we will be focusing on the Pilgrims this week. I still have several books about the pilgrims from when the girls were little and we took them to Plymouth Plantation.
