Quick Post, Native American Craft

Just a quick post (never fear, I'll be sharing more this weekend) now that Open House Night is over (despite my sniffles, it was a great night!) and November decor is coming down today to be sent home with students in time for Thanksgiving. I'll be sharing more photos of the November to December transformation too, so make sure to check back.

Dear Daughter made these Native American characters for my Stars out of cardboard tubes (a paper towel roll yielded two medium sized or three short sized Indians) so that they could use them for napkin ring holders, though we had fun using them as props as we sang One Little, Two Little, Three Little Indians...

One little, two little, three little Indians
Four little, five little, six little Indians
Seven little, eight little, nine little Indians
Ten little Indian boys (girls).

She made extras so that siblings who visited during Open House didn't leave empty-handed~ great thinking!

Though we didn't make Pilgrim characters, the Stars also enjoyed using their Indian characters as props when we read and re-counted
