Black History Month
Black History Month: February
During February we usually celebrate 100th day of school, Ground hog's day, Valentine's day, Dental Health, President's Day, George Washington's Birthday, Abraham Lincoln's Birthday, and Black History Month. Its hard to cover each of these holidays equally, it can be challenging but we do our best right! When we cover Black History Month we do not really focus on Martin Luther King since we focus on him in January. Our Kinder Team has geared it more to African American Inventors, (since we can not cover every significant African American in KINDER, we will save SOME for the other grade levels LOL). George Washington Carver is always in our lessons and several other inventors. At the beginning of the week we start with Carver and then move on to the other inventors. To close our mini unit on Black History Month we have a taste of Peanut Butter on Friday during our Social Studies time.
I have a subscrition to Teachers Helper (mailbox) as well that helps a lot when we are planning for our kinder lessons.http://www.theeducationcenter.com/tec/afc/magazines/subscribe/go.do
