Immigrating to America - and a Giveaway for the Sale

    Well, we are heading for America and Ellis Island! Our classes are preparing to land soon, so I had the kids create a profile for themselves.
First, each child chose a country and then researched common names, clothing, location, etc. so they could create their likenesses. I think they did a darn good job, don't you?
     Next week, we are going to a neighboring school for a simulation of the Ellis Island experience. I'm not sure who's more excited, me or the kids! I think they are pretty nervous because we have been talking about all the things immigrants had to go through to get into America.

    The thought of being detained is a little daunting, but I think it's a good experience for our little millennials. (Is that what they are, or is there a new generation name for them?)
     I'll let you know how the simulation goes. I don't want to give out too much information-just in case one of my kiddos read my blog. HA!


On another note, Teachers Pay Teachers is having a SALE this Wednesday, February 14 and Thursday, February 15. AND, guess who has a gift card to give away? Yep, that's right, I DO!

Be sure to head over to TpT to start piling goodies in your shopping cart!
