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
February was a fantastic month for our grade! We had so many students pass off their math facts! At our Buckles assembly, not only did we recognize those that have been passing off their math facts, but also a few stellar stars that have gone above and beyond the mark! From Mrs.
Mrs. Peterson's class has the perfect recipe for Shape Pizza! After learning about different shapes, everyone was able to make their very own Shape Pizza. They picked their own shapes, and created a most delicious pizza! If you're lucky, they might just share their secret recipe with you!
Congratulations to our Students of the Month for February. They are making great choices at school and working really hard! Great job to: Daniel, Adan, Aaron, Eva, Sal, William, Max, Maureen, Elle, Alaina, and Romina. Also, great work to those students who earned Buckles this month. Keep practicing those fast facts!!
Our second grade students were excited to attend the play, Alice in Wonderland, at Scera Theater in Orem. We sat on the edge of our seats as the actors sang and performed. Some favorite parts were when the Queen of Hearts got booed, and when the Cheshire Cat's face glowed. The Dancing Cards and Mad Hatter were fun, too! Everyone enjoyed the field trip!
