Christmas Challenge

We read the book titled How to Catch an Elf by Adam Wallace and Andy Elkerton. The students were then given the challenge to design and create an elf trap. They were able to use supplies such as pipe cleaners, bowls, craft sticks, string, and tape. It was a great opportunity for students to use their engineering skills as well as practice collaborating with groups. The results were spectacular! Each group built a great trap and was beyond excited to try and catch Santa's little helpers. Merry Christmas from Miss Kenison's 4th Grade!

Reading Carnival

On Friday, Meadow Brook was filled with the sounds of excited students all ready to spend their tickets at the carnival.  Not just any carnival- the reading carnival.  Students earn tickets to spend at the carnival by doing their weekly reading.  They can use their tickets on games, activities, ice cream, raffles, parties, and of course- books!  It was a lot of fun!  Keep reading Mustangs- the next carnival will be here before you know it!

Mrs. Peterson’s 2nd grade class earned their class reward to meet Mrs Peterson’s dog Quigley! They learned what responsibilities you have when you own a dog, how to approach a dog, and Quigley even showed them a few tricks! Quigley is a pure German Shepherd, and believe it or not, he’s only 1 1/2 years old! He weighs about 80-85 pounds and loves to play with all his new friends in the class!! Oh and he definitely loves to take pictures!

After reading Violet’s music from Journeys, the 2nd graders enjoyed a special guest visit from Mrs. Peterson’s dad, Mr. Murdoch! Mr. Murdoch shared all about his musical experiences growing up. From junior high to high school, playing at Disneyland, and with the University of Utah marching band! Mr. Murdoch also played songs for the 2nd graders including Amazing Grace, Star Wars (definitely a 2nd grade favorite), and Harry Potter! Thank you Mr. Murdoch for you beautiful music, fun stories, and teaching the 2nd graders to always do their best (and to do their homework)!
