  3. I teach 5th and we learn history up to Reconstruction. I am a real "history nut" anyway, so I love teaching this subject each year. This will by my fifth year to decorate my classroom in patriotic theme - and it's at a new school. Thanks for all the new ideas. Can't wait to get finished.

  5. I really like this theme and all you did! What literature do you use with it? I teach 3rd grade and am thinking about doing a patriotic unit. I need some literature to go with it.
