Holidays are so fun in the library! In the weeks leading up to Christmas, we enjoyed learning about two famous New York City traditions: the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. We first read Balloons Over Broadway, about the puppeteer who invented the giant balloons in the Macy's parade. We also watched a short compilation video of last year's balloons, and kids loved seeing their favorite characters march across the screen.

6th grade has been learning all about Greek History and all the Greek Gods and Goddesses. We even talked about different myths that came from the Greeks, including Pandora’s Box. The 6th grade classes put on a play called “Pandora’s Socks”. All the kids did so great and had so much fun!
In fourth grade, students have the opportunity of watching the Utah Symphony perform. This year looked a little different because we watched the performance virtually, but students were still able to enjoy the beautiful music. After the performance we had the opportunity to video chat with one of the members of the Utah symphony. This was a new and fun experience! Students were able to ask this musician any questions they had. They had so many great questions and learned a lot!
We loved having the districts’s Visual Art Integration coach, Ms. Brown, come visit our third grade class! She taught us all about the history of snowglobes and then showed us how to make some cute little snowglobes of our own. We enjoyed our time with her and all that we learned about art!
We have been learning about waves in fourth grade. We used a jump rope to create waves and looked for characteristics of waves. We learned that a wave is evidence of energy moving through water. The more energy we put into a wave the larger the wave becomes. The students had a great time manipulating the movement of the jump rope to creat different types of waves.
2nd grade enjoyed a day of snow outside and snow inside! We learned how to make “snow” and used it to form and create shapes that we have learned throughout the school year. We have learned about triangles, quadrilaterals, hexagons, and pentagons. Recipe for “snow”- 3 cups baking soda- 1/2 cup conditioner Mix and play!
