Preparing for Pow Wow

We have been busy busy busy preparing for Friday's Pow Wow celebration! We have learned about the Hopi Indians, made our own Hopi costumes, and made Kachina Dolls! Thank you to everyone who has sent in items and those who came in to help us! We hope that everyone will be able to attend our Pow Wow this Friday to help us celebrate the completion of our integrated unit on Native Americans. See you at our Make-and-Take Night tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. in our classroom!

This week's homework is based on the book Knots On A Counting Rope by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault. You can listen to the story read online at Enjoy!

On Friday, November 21st, we will conclude our unit by participating in a Native American Pow Wow celebration and various centers. The homework for this coming week is to research the Hopi tribe.
