Yes We Can!
A few minutes before noon EST,tomorrow, Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States. Here is how we will be celebrating:
As we transition as a country from President Bush to President Obama, we are also making a history lesson transition in our home schooling. We are finishing up our unit on the Revolutionary War and moving on to the brand new country forming a government and expanding.
This is a perfect time to talk about what a president's job actually entails, so our reading for this week includes Duck for President
There is also a Duck for president website with activities.
We also have a "book-on-tape" of So You Want To Be President, which we will be listening to in the car on the way to Blaze's therapies tomorrow afternoon.
