Mrs. Limon’s Students Study the Life of Helen Keller
Students in Mrs. Limon’s second grade classroom combined reading and social studies last week while reading about the life of Helen Keller. Students researched facts and wrote a biography about Helen’s life, wrote their name in braille, and made timelines of Helen’s life as well as their own.
While reading about Helen’s life, students needed to determine between fact and opinion, and put events from Helen’s life in order on a timeline. When writing about Helen, students generated a topic sentence, used transition words throughout their paper, and finished with a concluding sentence. Mrs. Limon stated, “Students enjoyed researching facts about Helen and sharing their own timeline, but I think they really enjoyed writing their names in braille!”
