Women's History Month has been front and center in all of our classrooms this month. Last week we shared how one of our 4th grade classes integrated women's history into a persuasive writing lesson, and this week we are sharing more stories from Kindergarten and 5th Grade!

This month Kindergarten is diving deep into Women's History and learning about different women who have paved the way and made a difference in the world. Today we learned about Helen Keller and the Kindergarteners practiced using American Sign Language to spell their names.
