We learned a lot about the Native Americans and the role they had helping the pilgrims. We learned how valuable the land was to them and how they used the natural resources of the land for all their needs. The students paired up to create a story about Native Americans using pictographs for some of the words.
Veteran's Day is celebrated in a special way at Wayne School. The students invite our local veterans to have breakfast and a special presentation from the students. Many of our veterans visit our classrooms and talk to the students about their experiences serving our country.

We had our first mystery reader! Mrs. O'Connor read two very good books. One was called Skippy John Jones in Spice. The class loved how she made Skippy talk. I know the mystery reader well because she is my mom!
We visited the U-46 planetarium. It is amazing to view the domed ceiling as the star machine displays the night sky. Our presentation included a look at the planets and how they are positioned around the sun.
The students are learning about character traits. We discussed what traits should our president have. The students ran for class president for the day. In their speech they included their traits that would make them a good candidate for office. The winner spent the day in The Oval Office.
