Who Was George Washington? by Roberta Edwards


The Treaty of Paris ensured peace between the United States and Britain. After the Revolutionary War, George Washington longed to retire and live a happy, restful life with his wife and stepchildren. However, everyone wanted him to be president. John Adams, who later became the second president of the United States, had the second most votes so he became vice president. Back then each state had two votes to decide who would be president. After serving two terms as president, George Washington retired. He thoughtfully decided that two terms were long enough for presidents. He passed away two years later.



I've let J's reading logs slide because of the holidays (December) and preparations for his school spelling bee (Feb 3). We're getting back on track starting this week =)
I might ask him to do "Who Is Barack Obama?" next. (He has read the book but hasn't written a report on it.)
