Mrs. Laabs

Meet Mrs. Laabs

Welcome to first grade. My name is Mrs. Laabs and I love teaching first grade! I have been teaching first grade at Park for seven years. Before I moved to Minnesota I taught first grade in California for 16 years. I have two children, Andy - a senior at Winona State University and Kelsie - a senior at Bethany in Mankato. 
We have a very busy year ahead of us - full of learning and fun! A few of the things we will be doing this year are: reading a recipe and following it to make Teddy Bear pancakes, reading, writing, and learning about how the pilgrims lived and learning how Christmas is celebrated in many different countries. We have a field trip planned at the end of the year. We will be making new friends, putting together your own first grade memory book, reading GREAT stories, writing your own stories and poems, adding and subtracting, doing Boost Up activities, and much, much more. I can’t wait to show you all of the wonderful books and math "tools" we will be enjoying together. I am looking forward to a wonderful year! 
I look forward to a fantastic year!
