October Third Grade Culture Day

Sarie Larsen

This month for our 3rd grade culture day we learned about the countries of Canada and Scotland. Did you know that there are two official languages in Canada? That means that kids there learn English and French in school! We also learned that one of their favorite sports is hockey! During the winter the lakes, ponds, and even driveways are turned into hockey rinks. Another thing about Canada is that they never wear shoes indoors. 

October Superhero Assembly


This month we recognized many wonderful superheroes in our school and community.  Congratulations to Miss Ledingham and Mrs. Finlinson.  They are superheroes at Meadow Brook because they are so positive and happy and they are always helping the students and staff with whatever is needed!  We also want to congratulate all of our amazing student winners for making great choices.

A Furry Friend Visits Mrs. Bird's Class


Our class has been working so hard to make good choices.   As a reward, Mrs. O brought some furry friends to visit us.  Everyone was so excited to meet Roger and Saturn, two Mini Rex bunnies.  We learned all about bunnies.  We learned that a girl bunny is called a doe and a boy bunny is called a buck.  Special thanks to Lynda Williams at UVU for letting her bunnies come to our class for the day.

Some thoughts from students:

David: "The best part was that one of the bunnies liked me!"

Aiyana:  "The best part was that they're SO cute!"

Enjoying Class Read Alouds

Morgan Peterson

Mrs Peterson’s 2nd grade class has finished their first class read aloud chapter book, “Because of Winn-Dixie.” They we’re able to enjoy the famous ‘Dump Punch’ from the story!

Dump Punch Recipe:
Half glass of Sprite
Half glass of grape fruit juice

“My favorite part of Because of Winn Dixie is when he pulls back his lips, pulls back his lips, and smiles! Also it makes me laugh and it’s cute”, says Marley from Mrs. Peterson's class.

Third Grade September Culture Day

Karen Thomas

As part of the third grade curriculum, we focus on learning about the cultures, customs, languages, traditions, and communities around the world. To help students learn about these things, each month we have a “Culture Day”, where parents/grandparents/family members of our students volunteer their time to come in and present about a country they are from or have visited. Thank you to our volunteers that came to visit us in September!

Diamond Fork Canyon

Claire and Presley in Mrs. Gregory's 6th Grade Class

On September 26th, 2017 the sixth grade went on a field trip to Diamond Fork Canyon in Spanish Fork.  There, we did four different activities.

For the first activity, we talked about the characteristics of plants. We learned about the varieties of leafs, and the different types of trees. After filling out a paper, and doing a group discussion, we did a scavenger hunt for different plants. We were given a card describing the plant, then we went to find it, and bring back a sample to our guide.
