In my last post, I shared my youngest’s desire to add current events to her course work, and, to a larger extent, to emulate her brother and sister. She’s completed her current events for 2 weeks now, and her results are well worth capturing. Here is a sample of her summary.
“Stitches of Hope”
‘There is a 30-foot flag that represents the country of America. When our American flag got badly torn with holes almost everywhere, but our flag survived. Seven years later our flag was sent to Greenburg, Kansas. After a terrible tornado, member[s] of Kansas used flags from around the world to repair a flag from 9/11. Then, the flag took a vacation and had more Americans help the poor little flag. Even the local navy sewed the flag.’
Definitely some work to do, but I love a child’s way of figuring life out. My personal favorite is the flag’s decision to take a vacation–too funny!!
