  • Don’t just read, interact

    The Governor’s Office of Early Childhood shares the following on how to read with young children. Interactive or dialogic reading is more than just reading a story. It is children and adults having a conversation about a book.

    How we read to preschoolers is as important as how frequently we read to them. In dialogic reading, the adult helps the child become the teller of the story. The adult becomes the listener, questioner and audience for the child.

  • Student essay winners; The LaRue County Republican Party sponsored an essay contest: “What the U.S. Constitution Means to Me.”

    In some ways the Constitution means a lot to me, because without it, I may not be able to be the same person that I am right now.

    Although the whole Constitution gives me certain rights and keeps me free, it is the Constitution’s First Amendment in the Bill of Rights that means the most to me. This is because it gives me my freedom of religion, my freedom of speech, and my freedom of press.

  • Student essay winners; The LaRue County Republican Party sponsored an essay contest: “What the U.S. Constitution Means to Me.”

    The constitution is the lifeblood of this nation, our rhyme and reason, our certificate to being American.

    To me, the constitution is not merely a contract, but represents what it means to be part of this great country. The constitution establishes a perfect Union, creating a nation in which we can thrive and be proud. The pages of the constitution grant citizens of the United States freedoms, giving us rights as humans. This manuscript is the heartbeat of our country; it throbs in every American’s heart, it beats in my heart.
