Our class has been studying five Native American tribes. The students discovered how each tribe survived within their habitat. The found out what each tribe used for tools, food, shelter and clothing. Everyone loved creating their own individual village scene complete with a tee-pee they created, Native American figures and accessories for survival. We concluded our unit by exploring an archeology site.The students had the opportunity to dig up Native American artifacts. Each student found a arrow head they could keep.

Everyone had a great first day. The second grade students were good mentors for the first graders. The second graders helped them at choice time showing the first graders where different activities were in the room. The first graders practiced their friendship and social skills sharing materials and taking turns. Next week I will be sending home a parent handbook that will answer many of your questions like the difference in schedules for first and second grade. Our class will be studying how to be a good friend for the next several weeks. We will be brainstorming how to be a good friend and acting these skills out to reinforce them. We will be reading books about good friends and even watching videos about unlikely animal friends. Over the next couple weeks take the time to write a letter to me about your child and the goals you have for them this school year.
Thanks Mrs. Cram
Ask your child what it means to be a good friend.
Ask how animals can become good friends.
