Salt Dough Maps

In 4th grade we have been studying about the three geographical regions of Utah. We learned about the Great Basin, the Colorado Plateau, and the Rocky Mountains. We then had the opportunity to make salt dough maps of Utah and paint them according to the three geographical regions. The students had a lot of fun and did a fantastic job!

Adding a little drama to phonics!

Mrs. Peterson's 1st-grade class have been learning about silent e. The students have been picking out masks and being sneaky and silent to demonstrate how silent e affects vowels in a word. It is always fun to add drama to your lessons and learning.

Acting Out in the Library

This week during library time, we learned how fun it can be to act out favorite picture books. Younger classes acted out 10 Fat Turkeys, by Tony Johnston, and enjoyed jumping off “the fence” when it was their turn. Older classes performed a reader’s theater of the book Turk and Runt: A Thanksgiving Comedy, by Lisa Wheeler. Some students were the readers, and did a great job using strong voices and reading their parts with expression.

All About Jellyfish

Did you know that a jellyfish doesn’t have a brain?
In our 2nd grade Journeys book, we read all about jellyfish. We learned that jellyfish don’t have brains or hearts and they never know if they’re stinging an enemy or a friend. We then picked 3 facts to share and then stated 2 opinions that we had about jellyfish. Ask your second grader what they think about jellyfish.
