February is Black History Month!

February is special in America because it is Black History Month. Black History Month is celebrated to help people remember African Americans who have made an impact or a difference in American life and culture.

Normally, children in America write a short biography about an African American who has made a difference. Now it´s your turn!

You must research an African American and write a short paragraph about why that person is important to America. You must include a picture.

Some examples of people that we study are:

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

Rosa Parks

Malcolm X

Frederick Douglass

Jackie Robinson

Michael Jackson

Aretha Franklin

Sammy Davis, Jr

James Brown

Ella Fitzgerald

Billie Holiday

Jesse Jackson

Muhammed Ali

Colin Powell

Toni Morrison

Oprah Winfrey

Barack Obama

Arthur Ashe

Maya Angelou

Sidney Poitier

Harriet Tubman

Al Sharpton

Text messages

When you write a text message (sms) in your language, you often use abbreviations to shorten words, so that you have more space to write more words. For example, you write xq instead of porque. We can do the same in English. There are many abbreviations that you can use if you want to send a text message. Here are some examples:

- B4 = before
- GR8 = great
- CUL8R = see you later

Can you guess what these abbreviations mean?
- 2NTE
- UR

Do you use abbreviations when you send messages? Give examples:

Yesterday, I received a message from a "special" friend, but I don't understand what it means. Can you help me?

dnt snd any msgs, i dnt wnt 2 c u, 2 hear ur voice, 2 think of u, 2 keep in touch wid u! coz da doctor advised me 2 keep away from sweets :)
