June 2, apparently, was very interesting.
Do I do the first president to get married in the White House? Fun, interesting, will appeal to the girls.
Do I do US citizenship for Native Americans? Ties into all the kids' social studies texts that we've been working on.
Do I do Lou Gehrig dying of ALS? We've had journals about Lou Gehrig before, and several of the kids play baseball on weekends.
Do I do Queen Elizabeth II being crowned? We've had other journals about her before, as well, plus, she's the current queen. And, queens will appeal to the girls.
Or do I do the Mars Express probe? With Phoenix in the news, they're all kind of into space, and we've been working on where you live: city, state, country, planet. Yes, I'm teaching them that they live on Earth.
ETA: Obviously, June 2's whole plan was to make June 3 so incredibly boring.
