Constitution Day!

posted Sep 16, 2015, 12:18 PM by Jesse Kohls

As a building we believe it is important for our students to understand the importance of the Constitution of the United States of America.  We watched the Schoolhouse Rock video “We the People" during lunch.  This week in Art class students will recognize Constitution Day by making bookmarks, and reviewing the importance of the Constitution.  Students will also celebrate Constitution Day by participating in grade-level appropriate activities.

Kindergarten: For Constitution Day we will review why it is important to have rules and tell students that our country has a set of rules called the Constitution.  We will also remind students the name of our country and color the American flag.

First Grade: We will be reading and discussing Constitution books that are appropriate for first grade.  We are all sharing the books and reading them at various times throughout the day!

Second Grade: For Constitution Day, the teachers will read aloud We the Kids. Each class will either write or review their class promise.

Third Grade: On Constitution Day, teachers will be viewing  and discussing a video clip of the book, We the Kids: The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States by David Catrow.

Fourth Grade: Our plan for Constitution Day is to read We the Kids by David Catrow. We will also discuss the Preamble and introduce the structure and content of the articles.
