Culture Day continues in the 3rd grade! Before Thanksgiving break, all third graders were able to learn more about the country and culture of Saudi Arabia. Students learned about Saudia Arabia's geography, traditions, language, government, religion and more. Students especially enjoyed learning about the different types of clothing typically worn in Saudia Arabia and the tradition of sitting around a rug and eating Na'an bread. Third grade loves our culture days and we are so excited for all the upcoming presentations!

In 4th grade we have been studying about the three geographical regions of Utah. We learned about the Great Basin, the Colorado Plateau, and the Rocky Mountains. We then had the opportunity to make salt dough maps of Utah and paint them according to the three geographical regions. The students had a lot of fun and did a fantastic job!
Second graders got to learn about different holidays celebrated around the world! They learned about how England, Holland, Hawaii, Mexico and the Philippines celebrate Christmas and other holidays are celebrated . We asked a few of them what something they learned was:Sophie W. "In Holland they have wooden shoes."Sarah D. "In Mexico they do plays!"Jordan A. "In England they use pillowcases for their stockings."
This week during library time, we learned how fun it can be to act out favorite picture books. Younger classes acted out 10 Fat Turkeys, by Tony Johnston, and enjoyed jumping off “the fence” when it was their turn. Older classes performed a reader’s theater of the book Turk and Runt: A Thanksgiving Comedy, by Lisa Wheeler. Some students were the readers, and did a great job using strong voices and reading their parts with expression.
Did you know that a jellyfish doesn’t have a brain?
In our 2nd grade Journeys book, we read all about jellyfish. We learned that jellyfish don’t have brains or hearts and they never know if they’re stinging an enemy or a friend. We then picked 3 facts to share and then stated 2 opinions that we had about jellyfish. Ask your second grader what they think about jellyfish.
