We spent this past week learning about Native Americans. Our centers were all Indian themed. We enjoyed a lot of Native American tales and did some fun art jobs to go along with the stories. We also worked on a study of different tribes and the different types of homes they made. We are creating a book of what we learn about Native Americans.
At this center they listened to the book I Can Read About Indians and then worked on drawing Indians in different setting and writing facts that they learned.
They put Indian symbols in ABC order and sorted Indian cards with different r clusters to go with a skill in reading.
They were introduced to using a ruler to measure to the nearest inch. They measured different Native American symbols.
Another center they unscramble words to make a complete sentence about Indians and they worked on number order to 75 by putting sets in order from least to greatest.
These are 3 of the legends that we read this week. In the story Raven we learned how the light was put in the sky. The Legend of the Bluebonnet taught us about making sacrifices and not being selfish. The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush taught us that everyone is different and has a special gift to share with others.
They loved this art job where we made the Indian Paintbrushes. We also made Indian headbands and collected our feathers for good behavior. Here are our Indian Princesses and Indian Warriors.
