A Day in the Life of a Second Grader

Nolan's second grade class invited parents in for a Potlatch to celebrate their learning about Native American Indian tribes.

He did a fantastic job teaching the grown ups and other visitors about "his" tribe. He enjoyed rattling off facts about how they lived. They also wrote out quite an extensive essay about their tribe.

His art teacher supported the event by helping the children make masks. Nolan's is the red one with the yellow ear. It is hard to see in the picture, but he attached long pieces of yarn with beads tied on them.

Here Nolan is showing how Native Americans might have decorated their clothes.

Very neat and well planned clay pieces on another group's Indian village.

Nolan's group made great boats ready to go out into the water.

Doesn't their class look great? Gee, the only thing I remember about second grade is staying in with Mrs. Waterfield to practice writing "friend" because I couldn't remember if the I or the E came first! Kudos to Mr. A. for making this year so wonderful for my son, and the other students as well.
