Third graders received dictionaries from the Springville Rotary Club. Students were so excited to look through their very own dictionary and find new words to use. One third grader said “I have never seen so many words in my life!” We can’t wait to use these dictionaries to learn new words in third grade!
For the last 2 years, resource teachers all over the district have been learning about Multi-sensory math and the 5 math superpowers. The second math superpower is place value and expanded form. One of the ways to build this is to have students build numbers and ask them what a number is made of and what it is called. They are also encouraged to keep using patterns within the construct of place value. Building numbers with craft sticks helps our class understand the composition of numbers. And when we build numbers, we solidify their knowledge of place value concepts.
Each term Meadow Brook students are rewarded with a fun activity for having good behavior at school. For term 2 Fourth Graders earned Minute To Win It Games. Each student got to participate in a game to help their team be the winner. There was cup stacking, balloon popping, marshmallow throwing, and cookie eating, just to name a few of the events. Fourth Grade teachers love to have fun with our students, especially when we get to celebrate their good choices!
