On Memorial Day we honor those soldiers who have protected us and have given their lives for our country. Let’s also honor those young men currently serving our country in the military. Behind so many of those men are strong and courageous women with families at home.
I just got home from 3 1/2 days with 44 9-10 year olds of which 21 girls were under my wing .We were at the South Fork of the American River in Coloma, CA. This is where gold was first discovered and this field trip is part of the 4th graders in Alexander’s class’s lesson on the CA gold rush. California kids can tell you what kind of mining was done, who was there, what Native American tribe lived there.
