Our 4th grade classes have started a science unit on Meteorology. To begin, we needed to learn all about what a meteorologist is and does. We studied, read, and researched to gather information, then wrote reports. After that, we turned our meteorologist into US! They don their rain gear complete with hats, gloves, ponchos and boots.
Brookside has a new group called The Bliss Squad. Bliss stands for Brookside Leaders in Service and Spirit. The group is made up of 8 sixth grade students who strive to lead by example. They are a great group of kids.
The Bliss Squad recently participated in a service project in which they helped clean up trash at Wayne Bartholomew Family Park. They also helped clean out a hundred plus snow cone syrup bottles to prepare the concession stand to shut down for the season. The students really enjoyed serving the community.
In Mrs. Smith's First Grade Class we celebrated Red Ribbon Week by observing Wacky Hair Day. This week we are talking about how to stay away from drugs. We have learned that illegal drugs are bad for our bodies and taking drugs might make us "do something dumb." We don't want to ruin our really smart brains by taking drugs. We know to say "Boo!" to drugs.
Miss Sahlins class invited Mrs. Hall's class to see a science project! She made a big bubble made out of dry ice, dish soap and water! They loved it and were so excited.
Help us spread the word and support Carter, a third grader in Nebo School District.
It is so amazing being a teacher and getting to know all of your students! It is just as wonderful to see your students outside of school though. I love going and watching all of our students participate in different activities. From piano recitals to soccer games I love them all. October 20th, I got to see some of my students play against each other. I invited my class to come support as well and I had 10 students show up! It melted my heart to see so many students come support each other. Of course we had to make signs!
5th grade has been trying to figure out what to do with remainders in division. We read some readers theaters that gave examples of what to do with them. We learned that sometimes you round up, drop them, or share them. This was a fun way for students to get real life ideas of what you would do with remainders.
Mrs. Poole, the fifth graders art teacher, took the kids outside and let them paint with chalk. The kids came in with their hands covered in "chalk paint" and huge smiles on their faces. Thanks for the fun art lesson, Mrs. Poole!
