This week kindergarteners are getting an introduction to forces and motions talking about terms like push and pull. A science outreach program called Discovery Gateway came to Meadow Brook to teach more about this concept. Students were able to investigate and demonstrate their learning by doing hands on activities.
In speech this week, our students have been working very hard on telling complete stories with appropriate grammar. We love using the "Story Champs" program to achieve this. Our story picture cards, icons, and color-coded popsicle sticks help students remember to include the main parts of a story: character, setting, problem, feeling, action, conclusion, and end feeling. We are so proud of our students who are learning to tell/retell stories anywhere from personal narratives to academic literature like pros!
4th graders love science! We have spent time this quarter learning about structures and functions found in Utah's environment to keep plants and animals alive. Each group in Mrs. Anderson's class got to deepen their understanding about one of the five animal groups and learn more about their adaptations
