Math with Mr.Bradford
Mrs. Delgado's kindergarten class enjoys frequent guest teachers in our classroom. This week we had one of our favorites-- district math specialist Todd Bradford. He helped us learn about combining numbers with simple math story problems. Our little learners used math tools like manipulatives and white boards to show our fantastic work and what we are learning.
Reading around Up
The annual school reading round up Fundraiser is beginning! Over the weekend students may get their pledges! This will raise money to get students more books and technology in our school! Students will be sent home a packet to gather pledges for their minutes. Students may only ask family members and people they trust. A sponsor can donate a flat amount or they can donate an amount for minutes read! For example if a student read for ten cents a minute and read 250 minutes you would owe $25 dollars. Then students may begin reading!
Wall of Figurative Language
Ms. Owen's class has been learning about similes and metaphors and looking for them in the books they read! Every time a student finds a simile or a metaphor in a book, they write it down on a post-it note and add it to our wall of figurative language. Every day they find so many more, and our wall is getting filled with similes and metaphors!
Class meeting with Mrs.Ashman
One of our favorite parts of the day is class meeting! We get to make class goals, share stories, and laugh with each other! It is so fun learning how to be kind classmates and good friends.
Getting creative during inside recess
Educators in Utah were given the opportunity to apply for a $1,000 grant from the State of Utah for classroom materials. Mrs. Anderson's 4th grade class received indoor recess and STEM materials to make indoor recess a more engaging time for students. Students have loved building, creating, and problem-solving with various blocks, Legos, puzzles, and craft materials. Mrs. Anderson loves seeing their minds stretch as their creativity gets put to good use!
Miss Oberg's class had so much fun last week! We got to celebrate Valentines day by having a party and passing out Valentines.
5th grade has the beat
While exploring Jazz music, the 5th Graders practice some cool beats on our makeshift drums. They learned the difference between a straight beat and a swinging beat. Also listening to What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.
Mrs. Oman’s class is grateful to the State for funding our flexible seating and for giving the students the opportunity to move and learn.
