Learning about Fire Safety in Second Grade!

Last week second graders were visited by Utah County Fire Department and learned about the importance of fire safety. The students got to see all the equipment that the firefighters keep in their trucks and learn about the big water hose!  Second graders then practiced being safe at school with a fire drill so that they all know what to do to be safe in a fire. The second graders had so much fun learning from the firefighters and say a big thank you for keeping us safe!

Beautiful Oops!

Mrs. Oman’s Class read Beautiful Oops! by Barney Saltzberg. We learned that when unexpected things happen, we can make them into something beautiful. We practiced this concept by turning blobs of paint into delightful creations.

Meadow Brook students are so excited to get back in the library and check out books! They are being great about sanitizing their hands, wearing their masks, spacing out while they browse and read, and doing everything they can to help keep everybody safe! We have such awesome students!

5th Graders Make Scientific Sketches

This week in 5th Grade we learned how to make scientific sketches. We learned to have a good scientific sketch they need to be accurate, big, colorful, detailed and explained. (ABCDE) We got to practice our first sketch with a leaf from a fur tree. It was much more difficult than we thought it would be. We worked hard and started to notice lots of details in our leaves. We ended up with some great sketches!

One Good Deed

Today we learned about 9/11. We learned that almost 3,000 people lost their lives and more than 500,000 people were rescued by boats.  All it took was one good deed! Each person in the class tied a ribbon on their finger to remind them to do one good deed!

Team Building

In 4th grade students learned about working together as a team. In this team building activity, students had to work together to stack cups into a pyramid. The only problem was that they couldn't touch the cups with their hands. The only tools they were given were some string and a rubber band. It took a lot of teamwork and concentration, but everyone succeeded in building a pyramid!

3rd Grade Creative Notebooks

We had a special motivational visitor come and share her love of writing with our 3rd grade classes. Keri Measom-Francis, a professor in the education department at UVU, and author of the children's book, Christmas Underwear, has a passion for "Creative Notebooks". Our students were so excited to create these notebooks with her! Her visit has inspired us to write about our lives and the things that we cherish and love. To prepare for her visit, we personalized the front of our notebooks and then "tabbed" our books into 4 equal sections.
