Sacagawea Visits Nova

Sacagawea or "Bird Woman" as her name translates, made a surprise appearance in Mr. Long's third grade classroom last Friday. She was clad in brown clothing and her prize possession, a blue beaded belt. On her back was tied her little son, Pomp (as William Clark has nicknamed him). Sacagawea was one of many famous individuals of American history who showed up that afternoon to share their story and invite us to read and enjoy their boards and artifacts detailing their life. I was especially impressed with Maddie's, I mean with Sacagawea's, presentation to her class and their parents. She was poised, calm (even though she admitted later to much nervousness), and audible as she shared her 2.5 page report of her life. Well done!
