The November 2009 Book-of-the-month, Long Night Moon, written by Cynthia Rylant is one of the books used in connection with Pow Wow.

  • The First Grade Sunshine Band wrote six word poems in response to our book of the month. Check out their Powerpoint!

Songs with motions for Pow Wow (would suggest putting songs on charts and use as shared readings to help learn the words and motions)
Sunset
Now the moon is in the sky
To the sun we say good-by.
Father Sun sleeps in the West
In the sky we see the moon
Shadows creep. The night comes soon
Father Sun sleeps in the West
And his people go to rest.

Dancing Song of the Skunk
See my tail rattle, rattle
See my tail rattle, rattle
Both my ears go rattle, rattle
Both my ears go rattle, rattle
Watch my middle rattle
Watch my middle rattle
My whole body rattles
My whole body rattles
See my striped face
On my back, white stripes
On my back, white stripes
