2nd Grade Learns About Famous Americans


In Social Studies we are learning about Famous Americans (Social Studies 2.11). One famious American the second graders are learning about is Helen Keller. We had the pleasure of having Mrs. Parker, teacher for the visually impaired, come to our classroom to show us some of the things people such as Helen Keller used.  Mrs. Parker helped us understand that visually impaired people can get around using a cane or talking calculator.  Our favorite part was learning about Braille. All the classes took turns using a Brailler to creates Braille. We were also able to experience firsthand how Helen learned how to read. Thanks again Mrs. Parker for coming in to our classrooms.
