We are so lucky to have Ms.Cope at our school. She is aour Speech teacher here at Meadow Brook. Here is what we have to say about her! She is kind and flexible. She is willing to jump in and help with anything. She changes the lives of students daily. She is friendly and easy to talk to. Students feel comfortable and safe with her. She carries her self very well. She is child focused and positive. She is knowledgeable and efficient. She is fun and organized! She recognizes the needs of students and puts students first. Students love seeing you.
Our kindergarten class has buddied with a 4th grade class to read together! This is so beneficial for both age groups to get exposure to books/sight words (for kinder) and to build confidence in reading skills (4th grade). We love visiting with our buddies and can't wait to see them every week!
Congratulations to Ms.Thomas. She was awarded the Crystal Apple Award for being an outstanding teacher. Each day she brings light into Meadow Brook elementary. She teaches with her whole heart. Students love Ms.Thomas. She has made a difference in many students lives. We love you!
The state of Utah provided money for each teacher in Utah willing to write a grant. In the grant teachers needed to describe what supplies they needed in their classroom. I wrote a grant asking for inside recess supplies. When the air quality isn't good enough or it's too cold to go outside we have to stay inside for recess. All kids need to run around and get some fresh air, but that isn't always possible. In the past whenever we had to stay inside my students have dreaded it. With our new supplies students have enjoyed inside recess a lot more.
Our third graders are loving learning fun things in Science with our "Force affects motion" unit! We loved exploring non-contact forces-(static and magnetic). We had so much fun applying our knowledge about these forces with soda can races! Each pair of students charged their balloons with static electricity by rubbing them on their heads, and then pushed or pulled their cans with their balloons. Pairs worked hard to get their soda cans to roll across the table or carpet and then we competed in soda can races! We love Science!
