President's Day

Do you know how tall Abraham Lincoln was?  He was 6'4" tall.  We thought that was REALLY tall.  Then we got to see how tall he really was and compare ourselves to him with a life-size Abe Lincoln poster!  If he was wearing his tall hat, he would have to duck to get into our classroom.

That is only one of the many facts we discovered about Honest Abe as we have been learning about why we celebrate President's Day.   First graders, want to earn a bonus jump?  TEACH your parent something YOU learned about Abe Lincoln.   Parents,  leave a comment below telling me what your child taught you.  You can earn bonus jumps through Friday!
