First Grade. i (Mrs. Cordes) The gay spirit of Christmas has! invaded our room. Each day the excitement of the season heightens as we prepare for Santa's visit and the birthday of the Christ Child. We brought many pretty ornaments to decorate the tree. Andy Enyart watches the lights so that they won't become overheated. The stories we read remind us that Christmas Is a time of giving joy to others. We drew names and will exchange presents. It is hard to keep the names a secret! In numbers we have started a new workbook, "Numbers We Need. Book I." We have a new science book, too. It is called "Winter is Here.' All of us are reading in "The Lit tie White House" now. The stories are about the same family that we met in our four pre-primers. We think Flip, the dog, is funny because he always seems to get into mischief. We were interested in the rattles on a rattlesnake's tail. Loren Johnson brought a snake skin to show us. It has rattles on it. First Grade. (Miss Targeson) The boys and girls in our room have been making Christmas decorations for their room and for the tree. They also brought some ornaments from home. They have been listening to Christmas stories and poems and wrote a story about a Christmas picture. Mary Berns returned her dental card so we now have fifteen cars on the good health train. Third Grade. (Miss Cremer) We were happy that so many of our mothers were able to attend our Mother's Tea last Tuesday. We know everyone had a nice time. Christmas, Christmas everywhere! Our room looks pretty decorated with greens, holly, and all the trimmings of the Christmas holiday. Everyone had fun trimming our tree. Now everyone is excited about our big Christmas program. We hope all our parents and friends will come to see it. Another dental card has been returned. Patricia Brandenberg brought hers back.
