George Washington and Thomas Jefferson

 Josiah as George Washington and Evie Joy as Thomas Jefferson! They did such a great job introducing themselves and presenting their books they made along with a poem from EJ and a song from Josiah:
Josiah wrote this song:
 George Washington was doing battle
but he wasn’t doing good
But then on Christmas night
through the snow (icy slopes)
things turned around!
He was the First Presdient
He married Martha
who (already) had 2 children
He made the first money
And he’s on the dollar bill
and a quarter

He had motions and everything but he did get a little shy…

Evie Joy wrote this poem:
Thomas Jefferson had his head 
stuck in a book not in bed
He had to use his quill pen (quill )
not a drill
He wrote the Declaration of Independence  
He is on the nickel worth 5 cents
He was the 3rd President 
to many countries he went! 
 Josiah did an excellent job speaking on stage!  Evie Joy hopped across stage!? I asked her why and she said because she likes hopping??? not sure what that has to do with Thomas Jefferson...
 But when it came to presenting at her table, she did excellent!  I had many people come up to me and compliment her presentation and how much they enjoyed her!

They both worked really hard researching, writing, designing and completing their books as well as crafting their own song and poem!
