Jamestown Report

Jamestown was settled in 1607. It was the first English Colony that succeeded. The English settlers traded with the Powhatan Indians. Pocahontas is a famous Powhatan Indian. The settlement grew larger. Jamestown was the capital of Virginia until 1619.

My trip to Jamestown was fun. I liked making the rope and I liked how Indians crush corn. It was fun to try it. They shaved the deer skin with oyster shells. I enjoyed trying it. I liked how they made the Indian Huts. The beds had fur. I would hunt a Bob Cat to make my bed because I felt one’s fur and it was soft. We got to see the three colonist ships. The ships sailed a long way. They look cool. I liked how big they were. I had never seen a famous ship before. My favorite part of Jamestown was playing in the Indian Village.

The Girl in my Bed

There was a tiny girl in my bed

Who slept right on top of my head.

She wakes me at night

Because her pajamas are too tight.

“Make me new clothing,” she said.

Psalm 5

From The Time that I
Wake up, God, I talk to you.
You listen to me
and protect me.
You know that I love you!

(Taken from Psalms for Young Children by Marie-Helene Delval. This one is my favorite)
