These photos were taken Friday, February 19! You see no coats and a snow pile in the background. Only in Nebraska!!
We had an Art Reach lesson and a Valentine's Day party on the same day! We made pinch pots out of clay. First, we watched Mrs. Bovick, and then we got to make our own. What fun!
Thanks to all the parents who helped make our Valentine's Day party so much fun!! A special thank you goes to Mrs. Yarpe who took the pictures for our Valentine frames. Sooooo sweet!
We had a wonderful 50 States Party. We had many states represented by food and clothing. Thanks to the many parents who helped make this day so special.

He then calmed the group down by giving us a blessing. Thank you, Fr. John!

These shoes helped us with a lesson about picking "Just Right" books for our book bag. Ask your first grader about "Just Right" books.
We learned some tips on how to pick good books for our book bags.
We know that there are three ways to read a book:
1. Read the pictures.
2. Read the words.
3. Retell the story.
