• Building a Fort

    building a fort

    Check out this, kids! One of your classmates decided to build a fort in the woods. He loves making blanket forts at home, so one day he took it to the next level. His family showed him some ideas from a survival guide. First, he picked out where he wanted to build his shelter, which was a bowled out area in the ground with a fallen tree on the side. Then he decided what materials to use and how he would use them. Mom and Dad helped him gather fallen branches and trees. He even used a string line to measure the trees and a hand saw to cut them. After that he cut some pine boughs for the roof. Finally he used some ferns for "curtains". Great job!

  • Meet Mrs. Hultgren

    Hi friends. Thanks for visiting my page. Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm thrilled to be in my 24th year of teaching here at Hiawatha School. I have been teaching second grade for about 18 years, but I started at Hiawatha as a kindergarten teacher. I am super-lucky to share that I absolutely LOVE my job. I have a lot of fun with kids because, quite honestly, I believe that I still am a kid myself...
