Cesar E. Chavez Day

We celebrated Cesar E. Chavez day today. We spent the morning learning about Cesar E. Chavez life. We used a great packet developed by the Los Angeles County Library. We read stories, did a play, and completed a crossword. After Recess we set up the LCD projector and watched a documentary / Biography on Cesar E. Chavez from the UFW (United Farm Workers) Website. We also used a timeline on the life of Cesar E. Chavez and listened to an NPR (National Public Radio) news report given in 2004 in observation of Cesar E. Chavez Day. After lunch, to Wrap up our day, we did a Read Aloud; Harvesting Hope. Finally we read The Historical Life of a Farmworker a great coloring book found in the elementary campaign pdf from the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation. NOW we’re ready for Spring Break!

    What–Ceasar Chavez in the MORNING!!! Blasphemy–that’s OCR time! Just kidding. Anyway, I’m proud of you for keeping up with your blogging all this time. I’m in Denver (still), soon to have a new cousin. I tried to download your digital storytelling video but it wouldn’t come up. Let me know what I should do. I’d love to see it.
