To celebrate Read Across America on Wednesday we focused on the book The Cat in the Hat.  We asked the students to wear stripes or a hat.  It was a fun day to see all the stripes and the fun hats.

We had the opportunity to have Mr. Todd Bradford, a district math specialist, come into classrooms this past week and work with students on various skills.  In Miss Bird’s fifth grade, he came in to solidify adding and subtracting fractions. The students love when Mr. Bradford come in to teach. Thanks, Mr. Bradford for a great lesson!

Today, February 21, 2019, our fifth and sixth graders had the opportunity to attend an engineering and technology fair put on by UVU.  Students got to go to and participate in three stations. They could build a maze out of straws for a marble run, build a catapult, or make a bridge out of close pins, craft sticks and binder clips.  They could could try out virtual reality, an Ozobot or program Finch Robots. They could learn about static electricity, build a tower out of cups without touching the cups, or try to balance a paper robot.  The students enjoyed having the UVU students her to work with them.
