Eva... Citizen of the Week

Last week, Eva was Citizen of the Week. That meant that we made a poster with her favorite stuff for Monday and did a report on a historical figure on Friday. She got Davey Crockett. I told her the stuff I could find on line and then she just started making the pictures and the house. The teacher said we could bring a treat. I am never one to pass up on treats but couldn't think of anything Davey Crocket-ish. I don't know exactly what frontiersmen ate but I do know bear meat and coffee would have gone over well in kindergarten. I called my sister for ideas (I swear, we are always calling each other for this sort of stuff) and she gave me the idea to wrap some trail mix in a little bit of cheap brown material to make it like a pouch. Proudly, it turned out very frontiersman-ish.
Eva was a champ and sang the first verse the the Ballad of Davey Crockett. I got it on video but don't know how to edit it to just the song. I will post it if I get the time to figure it out.

Nothing more American than Davy Crockett. I might have gone for something like beef jerky given Crockett's hunting background. Or bear meat - I think the kids would have loved it. Where do you find bear meat I wonder?

Too cute. That hat is hilarious. I remember my brother having one of those. The poster turned out great. Looks like she is loving school.

Impressive! Davy Crockett would have been proud. It looks like she did a great job. Her art work is amazing for Kindergarten. I have fourth graders who cannot draw as well as she does. Everything looked great. She is a tough act to follow. I feel sorry for next weeks citizen. Love, Grandma

Eva is such an adorable citizen of the week. She should really bring coonskin caps back in style ;-). Way to put together an awesome presentation!
