Everybody in the whole grade was looking forward to Grandparents and Special Friends Day, even the people who didn’t have a grandparent or special friend visiting, because it is exciting to get to meet new people and have fun activities to do. There were so many guests that Kennedy’s class was too full, and two first graders had to be honorary guests in Ms. Fonner’s classroom!
Grandparents and Special Friends Day is a day for us to see grandparents and friends who are special, and to have a little company in school. It’s a chance for the visitors to learn about Meridian and what we do here, and to experience some of our classrooms!
There was a lot to do on Friday! We played fun games like Domino Top Drop and Four Strikes You’re Out, and taught a miniature music lesson about what we’re learning, like staccato and legato. We also counted the steps it took to get from the music room to our classroom (but we can’t remember how many it was). Then we drew pumpkins that had facts about our family, like how many people lived in our house.
The day is a really good time to have company, make friends, and show your special people around. It’s not all the time that you get to spend time with your family at school, and sharing that is really fun, because it’s a great place! It makes them feel like they’re one of us, because they are one of us. It makes them feel important a school too, not just at home with our families.
