Mrs. Fantini, our LD tutor, recently finished reading, George Washington's Breakfast,by Jean Fritz with her third and fourth grade literacy group. The story was brought to life this December when the group ate breakfast just as George Washington had so many years ago. Students ate delicious hoecakes prepared by Marjorie Berger, our library media specialist and sipped cider from delicate tea cups while discussing the many pieces of factual information found in Jean Fritz's book. Some favorite facts that came up during the discussions were that George Washington had size 13 feet, 10 hunting dogs, 64 brass buttons on his uniform and lived in Mount Vernon. The students will use a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast George Washington's breakfast with their own.
The table was elegantly set with china and teacups. Students were able to take home the beautiful napkin rings.
