Readers Theatre

The 5th graders are learning about the American Revolution, and today Miss Owen's class did a Readers' Theater presentation of a play called No Taxation Without Representation! In groups, they rehearsed, made their own props, and performed for the class. The play is about how King George made the colonists pay taxes they felt were unfair and how the colonists responded. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun!

Flashlight Reading in Fourth Grade

Reading is always fun — but especially when you get to use a flashlight :) I have been impressed by my student’s taste in good books this year! Many of them choose challenging selections that push their reading to the next level. We have also recently had an uptick in the amount of nonfiction texts checked out from our classroom library! We’re readers for life!

Third Grade trip to the Movies

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Tue, 12/06/2022 - 21:31

This week, third graders were able to visit the Payson Theatre to watch Santa Clause 2! Each student got a drink, popcorn, and some fun with friends! The students earned this activity through showing acts of kindness to their fellow classmates. The students worked hard and their hard work paid off. We would like to thank Mr. Haslam for making this field trip possible for us! What a great way to celebrate the Holiday season. We had lots of fun!

Christmas Around The World

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Tue, 12/06/2022 - 21:26

Second Grade had a Christmas Around the World day! Students spent time in each classroom to learn about different cultures, countries, and holiday traditions. Students were given 'passports' and 'traveled' from country to country. Our classroom transported students to Holland where we made wooden shoes for Sinterklaas to fill with goodies. Hooray!
