Mr. Wolfgram

7th Grade World History & 8th Grade U.S. History


Flag Day 1Flag Day 2

Flag Day

It started in Wisconsin, June 14, 1885, at Stoney Hill School

Teacher, BJ Cigrand, thought a day for the flag would be cool

He wrote to newspapers, for 31 years, with much to say

Until President Wilson, in 1916, officially recognized Flag Day

 

Today, as you walk or drive around look for your flag

What the American flag symbolizes makes me want to brag

The flag still flying during the war of 1812 inspired Francis Scott Key

To write the “Star Spangles Banner” to celebrate American victory

 

You will see 13 proud stripes of red and white

Representing the Colonies that stood up for what was right

50 shining stars boldly displayed on a field of blue

Representing the current states to which that Nation grew

 

A tribute starting in Wisconsin in that one room schoolhouse

The flag of the Nation with a flame you can not dowse

The flag stands for freedom wherever it flies

A beacon of hope as it fills the skies

At the end of the 2016-2017 school year, Mr. Wolfgram will be leaving Walter Reed and transferring to a school closer to home. I would like to thank each and every person who has helped to make the 11 years I have spent at Walter Reed enjoyable. So many people helped to bring joy to my day over the course of my time at WRMS. There are many things I will miss very much – people and experiences!

I wish all my students, present and past, good luck with their future education and endeavors.

Poetry Assignment: Due Friday, June 2

A cross-curricular lesson between English and History
Knowledge unknown will no longer be a mystery
Due Friday, I want you to write an original poem
With line rhyming patterns that do not to roam

When you are writing groups of lines they should rhyme
Each pair a couplet, with two lines rhyming every time
The lines of your poem must number at least eight
Four couplets, but if you do more that would be great

Use the movie you have watched in class this week
Citing names, facts, and details as you learn and seek
Write your poem with creativity, use full effort not half
When you read in class, you don’t want your friends to laugh
