Mrs. Gonzalez class along with the other 4th grades has learned to write diamanté poems. We had a fun and beautiful snowflake art project to go with the Snow poem. Some Diamonte  poems start and end the same. Others choose to make them end opposite. Either way we get lost of fun practice using adjectives, verbs, & nouns.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The past few weeks 3rd grade has been celebrating one of our nation's heroes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We haven been working on writing our own biographies about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and added a fun "pop art" project to portray this great man! The prompt that they responded to was, "How has Martin Luther King Jr. changed our world for the better?" It's been a really fun couple of weeks learning about all he did for our nation, and his fight for equality. He truly did change our world for the better and is a bright example of kindness and bravery to stand up for what is right.

This week in second grade, students are learning to tell time! Students were working hard learning to read time to the hour and to the half hour. Students noticed that the hour hand is always half way between the hours when the minute hand is on the 30!

This year the science core for first grade changed and we have all been enjoying it!  We get to discover and experiment with different things.  This month we are learning about light and sound.   Last week, we experimented with sound and learned that  vibrations make sound and sound creates vibrations.  This week we were experimenting with light.  The students were asked to make a small lightbulb illuminate, or light up.  They could only use the supplies that were on the table.  After much discussion and trial we learned how to make a potato battery!  It worked!!  We had to use zinc nails, cop

Fun with Morse Code and Frequency

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on Thu, 01/21/2021 - 10:10
Our class has been treated to learn about Morse Code and Frequency from the Johnson's.  The students have learned how to say and sign their names in Morse Code.  They even got to make their own Morse Code devices.  We had a great time playing Hangman as a way to learn the Morse Code alphabet.  The students would guess letters not by saying them, but by signing them on their Morse Code devices.  It was so neat!  We are so grateful to the Johnson family for taking the time to teach our class something new!

Utah Land Regions

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on Wed, 01/13/2021 - 13:38

4th graders studied the three land regions of Utah this week. Learning became hands-on as the students created the Great Basin, Rocky Mountain, and Colorado Plateau land regions and land forms using salt dough. We discovered that Utah county is a point where all three regions overlap, creating a place with diverse surroundings. 4th graders are discovering that Utah is a great place to live!
