Buddy Reading

Last Friday, we had partner reading with Mrs. Baughman's second grade class. We read books to each other and had a fantastic time. We can't wait to read with them again!

The Native American Suprise

A Native American man came to our school. He showed us a lot of cool and neat things. He brought a real tepee and set it up in the gym. We learned that they wore wolf fur and hides to chase the buffalo off the cliffs. He shared with us that they couldn’t talk to other people who were not in their family because it was considered rude. They drank out of buffalo bladders, buffalo horns and buffalo stomachs. We also learned that they burned buffalo poop in their fires because it helped keep in the fire burning. We thought he was awesome!

Native American Paintings

We made Native American paintings in class. We are learning a lot about Native Americans. We used their symbols for our writing. We wrote legends about Native Americans. Our class, used paper bags for our stories. Then we wrote the stories in our words.
