Sonia Sotomayor

This week was the first of 4 weeks of Hispanic History Month! We kicked off Hispanic History Month by learning about Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic female Supreme Court Justice.

Monday, we looked at a poster with her picture and read the first half of a book about her.

Tuesday, we watched a clip from Sesame Street that she was in where she was helping Baby Bear and Goldilocks solve a problem. We also graphed who we thought she would side with in the disagreement.

Wednesday, we made a list of things we learned about Sonia Sotomayor from the book we read and from watching her on Sesame Street. The kids also painted toilet paper rolls to make gavels with!

Thursday was Constitution Day. We talked about what the Constitution is and some of the rights we have under the Constitution. We also talked about our rights in the classroom and compared those rights with the Constitution. Then, we made letter F flags.
