On Friday, Hudson's uncle, Kyle Smith visited our classroom to talk about his military service in Germany. He serves as an eye doctor there. Kyle talked to us about why we celebrate Veteran's Day. Thank you Kyle and all other men and women serving our country. Thank you for keeping us safe.

We are really enjoying reading and learning about the Pilgrims, their journey on the Mayflower, and their lives in the New World. We wrote about things we are thankful for.
We are talking about our needs and our wants. Here is a list we made. We have had interesting discussions on what we really need to survive.

READ A GOOD BOOK EVERYDAY!!  Even Football Players, Ninjas, Ninja Turtles, Ballerinas, Kittens, Southern Belles, Movie Stars, and Doctors enjoy reading a great book!
Ask your child about EEKK!   Elbow to elbow, knee to knee, book in the middle so we both can see! Hudson and Tyler are enjoying a book together.

We enjoyed spending time in the Outdoor Classroom yesterday observing trees. We used our senses to see, feel, hear, and smell nature.

We enjoyed a visit from the Clear Lake Fire Department on Friday. Jim Finstad shared some important fire safety rules with the first grade team. We got to hop up into the firetruck on our way to recess. Have your child share some things we talked about.
