4th graders love science! We have spent time this quarter learning about structures and functions found in Utah's environment to keep plants and animals alive.  Each group in Mrs. Anderson's class got to deepen their understanding about one of the five animal groups and learn more about their adaptations

Working Together

We have been learning about how to work as partners in first grade. Here, one partner is working on reading a letter-naming page, and the other partner is listening carefully and helping make correction. It has made such a big difference in our classroom community when we know it is a safe place to try hard things and make corrections!

Shaping Minds in Kinder

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Fri, 09/22/2023 - 06:14

Kindergarten has hit the ground running! These kiddos brains are soaking up all the things, including shapes. Lots and lots of 2D shapes! 
They have learned how to determine which shape is which by it’s number of sides and corners. From a circle to a hexagon, they have got it nailed.
To apply it to the real world, our friends brought in pictures and items of shapes they see in our every day. They helped each other sort their shapes, and then worked as a class to check each shape category for accuracy.
Hooray for 2D shapes! Next up, 3D!
