We capped off our learning unit on manners and etiquette with our annual first grade tea party! The kids had a great time, looked fabulous, and brought their best manners. Thanks so much to our classy guests, our many parent helpers, and Miss Amy for the pictures. It takes a lot of work to put on such an event, and I appreciate all of the support!

The kids showed off their knowledge of the human body by sharing their books, projects, and artwork at our Human Body Museum Day. They performed poetry, played charades, told riddles, played games, and served their own homemade veggie soup. It was a great day!
