This particular student has become an TR expert (as much as a first grader can). His parents gave him a presidential book for his birthday and he proudly shows it to anyone that visits our class and will listen. I even had to scold him to put it away as we had other assignments. He proudly presented me with a TR book that he had written.
My point in all this is that history and the stories involved, does impact all kids, you just don't know when and where. I am so proud of this student and his desire to learn more! I hope that his interests in the field carry him far and I am thankful that we took to the time in class to learn about TR!!! BULLY!!
