Moon Phases

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 10/31/2018 - 08:26

Students in Miss White’s third grade class had a fun Science lesson about the moon this week! Mrs. Rands-one of our UVU clinical interns- planned, prepared, and taught a fun lesson about phases, orbits, revolutions, and how this relates to the moon and earth. Students did some fun, hands-on activities, and used technology to learn more about this topic.

Day two was crazy hair and silly socks day.  As a teacher, it was certainly hard to teach these students with all the crazy hairstyles.  So may great and creative styles.  Loved them all!

The Velveteen Rabbit

Submitted by susan.bird on Fri, 10/26/2018 - 11:26

Third grade visited the Hale Center Theater this week. They saw the play The Velveteen Rabbit and had a great time! Students also enjoyed a picnic lunch and some time to play on the playground in the park.

This week they have compared and contrasted the similarities and differences between the book, short movie, and the live performance of The Velveteen Rabbit. Then voted on which version they liked best. They tallied the votes and made a graph showing which version had the most votes- the play version won by a landslide!

Museum of Curiosity

Submitted by susan.bird on Thu, 10/25/2018 - 08:42

The fifth grade visited the Museum of Curiosity at Thanksgiving Point for a field trip on October 17.  This field trip was so much fun.  The students were put into groups to play together, work together and help each other.  One group of students work with their a member of their group to overcome her fear of hieghts.  They were all so proud of her.  The student returned to school exhausted from all the exploring, running and playing.  You know it's a good field trip when the student just want to take a nap when we return.  Thank you Thanksgiving Point for having us!
