Dear Beauvoir Friends,
We have neared the end of another week and I bet many of you are already thinking of the weekend. Have you ever wondered who invented the weekend? In the early 1900’s, a factory owner named Henry Ford noticed that his workers were not able to do their best work unless they had time to take a break and rest their bodies and brains. He decided that Saturday and Sunday would be just enough time and so the weekend was invented! Do you think the weekend was a smart invention? Can you imagine what school would be like if you didn’t have time to rest or play? I am thankful for the weekend, aren’t you?
Today is another riddle day for you. Let’s see if I can stump you!
Can you figure out where in the world FRIDAY comes before THURSDAY?
Answer: In the Dictionary!
