Fifth Graders Practice Multiplication

Ms. Susie Bird

Miss Bird’s fifth grade class is working hard to learn the “magic” way to multiply.  In fourth grade the students learn different methods, like partial products and the open area model.  This year the students are learning the standard algorithm and practicing like crazy. These students struggled at first, because they were used to their fourth grade ways, but they picked it up quick and are doing amazing.

Ms. White's class is working hard on their spelling.  They love to practice using white board markers on their desks.  They are sorting their words using the vowel combinations o, oa, and ow.  Great job, third graders.

Mrs. Abby Haines, Ms. Susie Bird

Mr. Todd Bradford visited classes and taught discovery math lessons. In fifth grade, Mr. Bradford explored ways to solve multi-digit multiplication problems.  He guided their thinking toward the "magic" way of the standard algorithm.  The students loved having Mr. Bradford visit.

Mrs. Dana Beckert

Brookside students have been busy writing sincere letters and notes, drawing pictures and expressing their appreciation for all the hard work put in by the many firefighters that have been working so hard on the Pole Creek and Bald Mountain fires. They have done all they can to save our mountains, homes, animals, and possessions and we are grateful and appreciative. We are not alone either, many schools throughout Nebo school district have also done this because it has affected everyone within Nebo School District.

Chinese Civilizations

Mrs. Cassie Crandall

For the last two weeks, we have been learning about Chinese Civilization in our classroom. We learned about the dynamic geography of China and how that affected the way people lived anciently as well as how it led to the Silk Road. Three major philosophies were studied; Confucianism, Taoism, and Legalism along with their impact on the different dynasties. Four major dynasties were studied; Shang, Zhou, Qin, and Han and we learned about their leaders and contributions to the modern world. To finish off our unit, the GAINS visual art specialist came in and taught us how to paint Chinese characters! We had a lot of fun learning this unit!

Who Is This New Teacher?

Submitted by liz.porter on Fri, 09/21/2018 - 11:18
Mrs. Liz Porter

I grew up in Bountiful, Utah and graduated from Bountiful High School. I have two older sisters who are both married, and have 2 nephews and 1 niece that I love more than anything. I have a younger brother and a younger sister as well. I played sports growing up along with my older sisters, and played softball at UVU for two years. I love to play and watch sports, watch movies, be outside, play with my niece and nephews, read, go to Disneyland, and all things Harry Potter. Chocolate ice cream and M&M's are my two favorite foods. I'm a super picky eater and refuse to eat hamburger meat and bananas, among many other things. I have been married to my husband Taylor for a little over two years. We went to high school together but never actually met until the end of our senior year. We got married in August of 2016 in Salt Lake City. He is a cancer survivor and a Pre-Pharmacy major at UVU. I hope one day to travel the world with my husband and experience new things that I can come back and tell my students about! If you know if this teacher is, post her name on Brookside's Facebook page!
