MORNING MEETING One pare of having good morning meetings is to have a classroom community. Create a classroom community is key to a successful year! I might add a part that says "i promise" be safe, be respectful, be responsible
Nice Introduction Video Clip on American Symbols.mov Includes clues and information about symbols with children singing in background "God Bless the USA". Recommended by Charlotte's Clips- government badge?
This (and a variation incorporating other countries) would be great as an intro to a unit on symbolism. What a great way to incorporate items already familiar to students. This could be easily adapted to make it multi-cultural in its scope.
Open Social Studies unit with this! FLYING OVER AMERICA. This is flippin fantastic! Real film + animation for a look at our great country like you have never seen before. You will love it. Enjoy :)) Great for landforms, landmarks, states, & more!
