Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.
This week in class, we’re reading "The First Flag" by Barbara Radner.
In the short story “The First Flag”, Barbara Radner explores the creation and impact of the first flag of the United States.
As we read, we will be discussing the theme of America as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :
"What makes America unique?"
Ways to support your child:
- Ask your child about this piece of historical fiction at home:
- What was "The First Flag" About
- What did you learn about?
- Watch National Constitution Center “The History of the U.S. Flag” at home with your child.
