Meadow Brook's final habit for the year will be Habit 8: Find Your Voice. From now to the end of the year, students will focus on being able and willing to discover their strengths and talents. Finding your voice means that you are patient with yourself. It takes time and a lot of positive self-talk to discover your own greatness. As we find our voice, we take the opportunity to share our talents and gifts with the world. Through our example, we lead and inspire others to do the same. If you would like to encourage Habit 8 at home you can do the following activities: host a family ta
We have such amazing 2nd grade students. They all do great things every day! This month, we want to recognize our Students of the Month for being hard workers and kind friends. They are Trinity, Kaylie, Isaac, Charlotte, Jonny, Jacob, Ellie, Linaya, Gabriel, and Kiji.
We were also super excited to have a visit from Cowboy Pitcher today. He came to show off his Hat and Belt Buckle and congratulate those students who have earned their fast fact buckles this month. Great job 2nd graders. Keep practicing those math facts and Yee Haw!
In our class we learned about seasonal changes and what causes the seasons. Part of the seasons session was about how much sunlight each one gets, how much daytime each season gets, and why it’s colder in winter than summer.Why is it colder in winter than in summer? It is because of the earth’s tilt and revolution. The earth's tilt is 23.5 degrees. Students in our class got to experiment how long days were in certain seasons and how much heat/daylight they get. The tests that we did showed that summer is longer because of the tilt that heats up the northern hemisphere.
Every month our 3rd graders have an opportunity to learn about cultures from around the world. Parents and grandparents volunteer to come and share things about a country they are from or have visited. We have loved having this awesome opportunity each month to learn about people from other countries and how they live their lives. Here is a video of our past culture day experiences. A big thank you to all of our volunteers who planned such great presentations to share with us! We can't wait to hear about new countries for March, April, & May!
For March, Meadow Brook students learned about Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw. This habit teaches students to find balance between their heart, mind, body, and soul. We find balance in our body through eating right, exercising, and getting enough sleep. We help our heart by spending time with friends and family. We help our soul through serving others. And we help our mind through learning new things, in all different settings. If you would like to encourage Habit 7 in the home, you can set a goal as a family to participate in a local fun run, plan a day to visit family or friends, or you c
