Oath of office

Oath of office
Originally uploaded by mahlness
Barack Obama takes the oath of office and becomes the 44th US president, as my third graders in Seattle spontaneously rise for the moment.

Some raise their hands with their new president, some hold their hands over their hearts.

That's a very special moment for both you and your students. It'll definitely go down in history. I'm glad you were able to record it.

Beautiful! They sensed the wonder of the moment, it seems. They must have a darn good teacher.
