This week's post will use swimming as a metaphor. There will be no mention of swimming, the sport. Instead I will be introducing what I hope will be a weekly feature the curriculum tie-in.
from Great Britain, the poet Phillis Wheatley wrote a poem of encouragement just for him. This picturebook biography can be used as supplemental reading for the lower grades. Since the book is set in Massachusetts, I looked at the states core curriculum. Biographies are among the informational texts acceptable for Pre-K- grade 5.
