This last Sunday was Grandparent’s Day and the Exeter-Milligan First Graders wanted to make sure their grandparents felt appreciated.
With a packed cafeteria, the first grade performed several songs and two plays that they had practiced for weeks.
The students split into two groups and part of the class performed “The Little Red Hen.” The students did an excellent job telling the story of all of the work the little red hen despite the laziness of her friends.
The second group of students performed “Three Billy Goats Gruff,” who encountered a mean troll on their way to greener pastures.
After several more songs, the students served their grandparents and guests cookies they had made and drinks. They also presented their grandparents with some specially made gifts.
After giving their grandparents a tour of the classroom, having their picture taken together and a class photo the school day was over for the first graders.
