It's spring break! We've had visitors in town to see the DC sights, so I've been recommending various highlights of the city. This is much the same position the second graders were in when they wrote their first pen pal letters a couple of weeks ago to our Louisiana pen pals. The assignment was to tell all about DC in the first paragraph of their letters, and here are some of the top features of our city that they chose to share.
DC is a safe place to be because we have people here in the U.S.A. like the policemen and the ambulance who keep us safe.
The President lives in our city. My mother lives in DC.
Washington has the only capital of the U.S. In the spring the cherry blossoms bloom.
Washington is a great place to be if you want to visit a different state. Some people visit DC to know if they are going to move.
It's a place where you can run, have fun, plant, eat, and shop.
Washington has a lot of buildings.
DC is fun because they have places like Pump It Up. That is a place where kids come for their birthdays.
You might think we see the President. Well, we don't but we wish we could see the President.
