Today we made a talking feather as part of our project week and Colonial wrap-up. I read the children the Sioux legend about how the crow and the magpie were both squaking at once and not listening to each other, and how wise Eagle instructed both of them and gave a lesson to the two legged creatures at the same time.
Kieran enjoyed the legend immensely–Especally in the parts where I imitated Crow and Magpie! He joined in mimicking the, “Caaaw-caaaw” and “Kaaack-Kack”
Tonight at dinner we put the feather to use, passing it around the table, and allowing only the feather holder to talk.
