TUESDAY: We are working on "Tab-Its" books (pamphlets) about Benjamin Franklin and the American Symbols in class. For the month of October I would like each student to pick a person in US History to research, simply 1 source, and fill in a "Tab-Its" book about whom he/she chose. I have the pamphlet ready to go when your student has made a decision. It can be a library resource or online resource, but I would like them reading at an appropriate level, suited to his/her individual needs. I really would appreciate parent support on doing this assignment. I am not testing nor grading your child, but a progress report will be issued at the end of the semester. I will have each student present his/her own report to the class on October 31st, which is also Halloween, he/she may want to dress up as the person chosen. We will have games and snacks, provided by parents that are interested, that day as well.
Please check out this link and be working on words from, Betsy Ross, we are using them in class and the students need to be familiar with the definitions.
There are 2 word lists covering the book.
