My third day in South Dakota had me in McLaughlin Elementary on the Standing Rock Reservation. It was Wacky Wednesday at McLaughlin Elementary and many of the teachers came dressed for the occasion in fun, crazy outfits! I got my own show watching the audience as I performed my two shows.
It was pizza day on Wacky Wednesday (although there’s nothing wacky about pizza) and after lunch I held a writing workshop for a bunch of hand-picked 4th and 5th graders. I hope you all learned something and keep writing: Avery, Braden, Brooks, Connor, Destiny, Ivy Jo, Jade, Jesstin, Lakeisha, Leta, Mercedes, Pamela, Payton, Pizi, Rambur, Sammi, Sarah, Tyla, and Tyler!
During my visit, I was surprised to get a stack of letters and drawings from Mrs. Doust’s 1st grade class. Thanks for writing: Brylee, Caiden, Carter, Daven, Dusti, Grace Lee, Greg, John, Kaylee, Kimimilia, Malzah, Oliver, Romani, Shayla, and Shelloni!
And to those who asked questions…
Shelloni: My favorite movie is Star Wars.
Oliver: For fun I like hiking, camping, and riding horses.
Kaylee: My favorite class was Science class.
Grace Lee: My favorite fruit are bananas
Shayla: My favorite hat is my cowboy hat.
John: Yes, I love to read.
Caiden: Yes, I alway have fun writing books.
And to Maleah, Carter, Greg, and Daven: My favorite color is red!
Thanks to Mrs. Thunker for inviting me. Thanks to Mrs. Taken Alive and Mr. Wutzke for helping me set up. Thanks to Mrs. Mann for the use of her library. Thanks to Lyden for his expert guidance to the lunchroom. Thanks to Emily for the cuts in line. Thanks to the 3rd grade for the original, signed audience banners. Thanks to Zoey Elizabeth for the letter. And a huge thanks to all the fun kids at McLaughlin Elementary! I had a great time visiting your school!
