Teachers Participating in PD

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on Tue, 05/07/2019 - 16:06

CA few teachers had the opportunity to attend a couple of professional development conferences throughout this school year. It was a fantastic and uplifting experience. We got to collaborate and connect with many teachers across the district and BYU, as well as getting to know each other better. We all came away from the conferences with many ideas to improve our own teaching practices as well as improvements for the school as a whole. It was a highlight to our year!

Being able to communicate helps children make friends, learn, and enjoy life to the fullest. Talking, understanding others, and knowing what to say are really important skills for preschool children to learn.

Ancient Romans Game

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on Mon, 05/06/2019 - 13:18

Tabula is a game invented by the Ancient Romans. Mrs.James’s class has been working on making their very own Tabula game boards. The Tabula game board is actually very similar in appearance to other games, like Monopoly, or Trouble. There is a symmetrical diamond on the board that is done by measurement. Then in each individual corner there is something that represents the ancient Roman culture. Then in the diamond there are Roman numerals: six on each angle of the triangle counting all the way up to 24.

Art in 3rd Grade

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on Wed, 05/01/2019 - 14:55

On Friday in Mrs. Clare's third grade class, students learned about impressionistic painting and how some famous painters such as Claude Monet, use a variety of colors to paint their "impressions" of what they see in nature. Students then created their own impressionistic paintings of rain by creating water droplets with their paintbrush out of a variety of colors. Students had a blast with this art activity and created some pretty awesome pieces of art work! Along with the art project, students wrote acrostic and haiku poems about rain to go with their painting.
