Blogging is a great way to stay in touch and share interests such as getting to know more about the USA.
"Freedom of speech" is one of our core values and I am pleased to support Public Speaking starting at Grade 3 as well as Bilingual Public Speaking (Grades 7-8)
using English and a foreign language by hosting an annual statewide spring contest. Finals are held at the historic Boston Public Library (BPL). For history visit our web www.speakingamerican.org
and for updates follow our Talks blog.
"Freedom of press" is another
essential element of our USA way of life. I am delighted to share with youngsters, parents and mothers' helpers books I have written on the Statue of Liberty as a symbol of Liberty and We the People, the first words of the Preamble to the Constitution
of the United State of America. I'll be posting more info for July 4th festivities and for US Constitutional Week celebrated annually in mid-September. NOTE re. BLOG PHOTOS-- If a parent or guardian does not wish a child's photo on this blog, please let me know and it will be removed. Thank you.
