Hurray it’s Friday!

As you ease your way into the weekend, we wanted to share you a freebie that will teach you how to count to 10 using Dakota numbers.

Grandfather Face

As part of our Camp Don’t Get Dumb Over Summer resource site, this FREE resource teaches you the Dakota-Sioux words to count to 10 such as Wanzi (1) and Zaptan (5).

Count to 10 in Dakota!

After you practice the numbers, put your new knowledge (and memory) to the test by playing this Dakota numbers memory game. This flash memory card game times you as you match numbers 1-7 with their Dakota-Sioux name.
