Happy November!  We ended the month of October with some great Halloween stories.  PreK-2nd grades listened to Halloween picture books and grades 3-5 had fun listening to Scary Stories.

As we move into November I am excited to share some Native American legends and stories with the students.  It is a great genre to discuss as we get closer to Thanksgiving. There are so many books we can learn from, but specifically we will be reading , The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush, The Rough-Face Girl, The Raven and The Coyote. We will discuss basic features of these stories including setting and characters.  We will also learn the significance of the Native Americans in the world around us, past and present.

As always, please encourage your child to read and return their Reading Center books in a timely manner. Thank you!!
