Do you remember where you were on Sept. 11, 2001?

Today we took some time in class to discuss the events of Sept. 11, 2001.  It's hard to believe that our third graders weren't even born yet....but some of them were very knowledgeable, and some were hearing about that day for the very first time.  It's a tough subject, but such an important one.  We are focusing on the heroes of that day, and we started brainstorming about the heroes in our own lives.  Throughout this week, we'll be writing about our heroes in a multi-paragraph expository essay.

Take some time at home to talk about the events of Sept 11th with your child, and how it affected your life.  Below is a great video to get that discussion started...
