There are certain things that happen in your life that change it forever. You will always know where you were, what you were doing and who you were with. September 11, 2001 is one of those days. I was a senior in high school. I was in a math class, with a teacher who is now one of my good friends. We watched a tv in our classroom, and sat together as one whole class. Nobody said anything. All we could do was watch. Before we left that class, our teacher said all we could do was pray. Pray for those in the buildings trying to get out, pray for those trying to get in the buildings to help people, people on the planes, people on the street…PEOPLE. Fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, children. PEOPLE. Our lives were forever changed that day. And our lives have not, and will not, ever be the same. May we all NEVER FORGET.
Here are just a couple of links if you are needing some help with teaching your children about what happened. I have not posted any links to any videos or images. I do not feel like it is my place to put those images out there. It’s been 12 years and my heart still hurts when I see pictures, hear 911 calls or see video footage. Everybody deals with grief in their own way. Find it within yourself to decide how you want to talk to your children about this day.
A timeline of events as they unfolded.
Patriot Day Proclamation – George Bush on the 1 year anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001.
I recently made up some household labels for a friend who was looking for some. You can find these labels HERE. If you would like some labels made that you don’t see above, send me a message and we’ll see what we can make! These are going to be best used by printing on heavy card stock and then laminated.
I have uploaded a printable clock to my TPT store. This clock features the hour, 5 minute marks AND 1 minute marks. There are also 2 hands to be attached, one specifying the hour and the other, the minute hand. This is going to work best printed on heavy card stock and laminated. Attach the hands to the clock using a paper fastener. Easy peasy, right?! If you download this, let me know what you think!!
I’m offering my Kindergarten Sight Word Packet
HALF price this week only as a Back To School Special! For $1.50, you get 30 pages of activities based on a 30 word list to be done over an average of 10 weeks! There is also a page of suggestions on how to use the packet…this week only!
I have uploaded a Sight Word Packet geared for Kindergarten age children to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. I have taken 30 Dolch Sight Words and made different activities for learning those words. They are broken down into 3 words per lesson. The idea would be to learn 3 words per week for a total of 10 weeks.(click on picture for larger image)
The first page is a cut/paste with lines to practice writing the words.
The second page is used to recognize the word, count and then fill in a simple graph.
The third page can be used for various things. You could laminate it (or use a sheet protector) and let your child use Play Doh, Wikki Stix, buttons, pipe cleaners, etc, to make the word. They could also color it, use markers, glue beads or any other small items to make their words.
I hope this is something that would be beneficial for people to use. I do NOT know though unless I get some feedback! This is my guinea pig run to see how well something like this goes over. I welcome ALL feedback! I do ask that you be respectful in your comments! Thanks!
