Another windy and rainy day outside, but that wont stop us! We learned about Puerto Rico! The kids took turns reading Puerto Rico by Holly Saari. Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth of the United States. The U.S. rules it, but it also has its own government. Christopher Columbus landed in Peurto Rico in 1493. Spain ruled the island for many years until the United States took control of it on December 10, 1898. Did you know that singer Ricky Martin was born in Puerto Rico?
We also made Mother’s Day cards and bookmarks!
