S is for Social Studies

I've decided to spend a little extra time on Social Studies this year...

Here are the top 10 reasons:

1. "Abraham Lincoln sneaked into a theater and shot George Washington."

2. "The teworwists fwew an aiwerpwane into the Empiwer State Buiwlding."

3. "America is a part of Florida."

4. "Cavemen and Indians hunted for dinosaurs to eat."

5.  English is a language. Spanish is a language. French is a language. British is a language.

6. Judges are the same as presidents.

7. People in a jury are called "Jur-mans". 

8. I am a "Zephyrhillian" and it is considered to be a BIG city.

9. "The capital of California is Hollywood."

10. I kid you NOT... (I called a few students up to my desk this morning to sing with me) here is a compilation of "America the Beautiful":

O beautiful for space in skies,
For amber waves of grain.
For purple mountains magically
Above the fruit in pain!
America! America!
God’s head is great on me!
And crown my good with brotha-hood
From sea to shiny sea!
(you should try singing this at the top of your's inspiring)

I just hope we have time to set some records straight before 'they' create a Social Studies FCAT.
