1st Grade



NES 1st Grade Activities and Highlights of the Year:


We are busy every month, but the following are some of the highlights:


October:  Apple Orchard field trip to the Fall Harvest Apple Orchard in Delano

November: Thanksgiving Feast

December: Make Gingerbread Houses

February: "I Love to Read" activities

March: We like to attend a play-usually at the Stages Theatre in Hopkins

April: Earth Day, Spring clean-up activities

May: Field trip to the MN Zoo, "Camp Skeeter" week at NES

***Also, in October, the 1st grade classes start their curriculum switching, called "Switcheroos". Mrs. Hovland teaches all of the first graders Writing, Mrs. Lubben teaches Social Studies and Health, Mrs. Waite teaches Science and Mrs.Deneen teaches Art. The students seem to really enjoy this and it helps build a sense of community in our 1st grade area.
