This year the science core for first grade changed and we have all been enjoying it! We get to discover and experiment with different things. This month we are learning about light and sound. Last week, we experimented with sound and learned that vibrations make sound and sound creates vibrations. This week we were experimenting with light. The students were asked to make a small lightbulb illuminate, or light up. They could only use the supplies that were on the table. After much discussion and trial we learned how to make a potato battery! It worked!! We had to use zinc nails,
Our class has been treated to learn about Morse Code and Frequency from the Johnson's. The students have learned how to say and sign their names in Morse Code. They even got to make their own Morse Code devices. We had a great time playing Hangman as a way to learn the Morse Code alphabet. The students would guess letters not by saying them, but by signing them on their Morse Code devices. It was so neat! We are so grateful to the Johnson family for taking the time to teach our class something new!
Second graders used adjectives to describe a snowman and then created a poem! Students describe the shapes, colors and size of the snowman and their accessories. After creating a poem using their adjectives for their snowman, student were able to draw and create their snowman with chalk and oil pastels!
4th graders studied the three land regions of Utah this week. Learning became hands-on as the students created the Great Basin, Rocky Mountain, and Colorado Plateau land regions and land forms using salt dough. We discovered that Utah county is a point where all three regions overlap, creating a place with diverse surroundings. 4th graders are discovering that Utah is a great place to live!
One of our favorite parts of 3rd grade is studying different cultures in our social studies unit. We love having parents come and share about different cultures they have experienced. One culture we learned about recently is Hawaii. We learned about the lifestyle in Hawaii and even got to see how they crack open coconuts. Now we're just wishing we could travel to Hawaii for a class field trip!
Mrs. Oman’s Class is learning about verbs. We watched Angry Birds and identified many of the verbs that the characters were doing in the clip. Then, we wrote sentences using past and present tense verbs about our own Angry Birds. Last, each child used a new medium in art - pastels- to create his/her angry bird character.
