Lisa Plans a Party
By Patti Hutchison

1     "Mom, can you help me?" Lisa asked. "Katie's birthday is in three weeks, and I want to throw a surprise party for her."
2     "That's really thoughtful of you to host a birthday party for your best friend," Lisa's mom told her. "I'll be glad to help you."
3     First, they thought of a theme for the party. "Katie really likes frogs," Lisa told her mom. "I saw some really cute frog decorations at the party store." Lisa's mom thought that sounded like a good idea.
4     Next, they wrote down the names of everyone Lisa wanted to invite. They counted them up to see how many invitations they would need. After making a list of all the things they needed, Lisa and her mom went to the party store. They bought a plastic tablecloth, paper plates, cups, and invitations. They all had frogs on them. They also bought some balloons.
5     When they got home, Lisa began to fill out the invitations. She wrote the date, time, and place of the party. She wrote a note at the bottom that said, "This is a surprise party for Katie; please keep it a secret." She also wrote, "Please RSVP to Lisa at 555-1234." This was a way of asking the people who were invited to please call to let Lisa know if they were coming. Having a guest count would help Lisa to plan how much food to make. Lisa addressed each invitation and mailed them right away.
