Just Like Clockwork!

Mrs. Sanders knows that when students work, discuss, and write together, they have more opportunities to verbalize their thoughts, get reactions from others to their thinking, and help students who do understand to cement and even extend their understanding.  All students benefit. 

After watching this lesson, I want to know where Ruthie and Sara do their shopping? Classic!

Animal Bite Prevention

Spring Lake Elementary News - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 3:34pm

Third-grade classes at Spring Lake have been writing informational reports on animals they have researched. Each student picked an animal to write about and then researched to find information telling about the animal’s description, what it eats, its habitat, and other unique qualities. As an extension of this research they were fortunate to have Kierstan Munford, with the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter, come and give them a presentation about animal bite prevention. Ms. Munford’s son, Riley Van Nosdol is in third-grade at Spring Lake. She taught the students safe behaviors for being around animals, especially stray animals or animals that belong to someone else. One important lesson she taught was what to do when an animal is in the school yard. Students are to leave it alone, not to chase it or touch it, and to tell the office so they can call someone to take it off the property. She said when animals are frightened, sick or injured they are more likely to bite.

You Read to Me, I'll Read to You.

Wanta' peek inside Miss Simmons first grade?  Her students are reading to partners because reading with someone else encourages students to try reading books that may be above their usual reading level, while also building oral skills so that students are more comfortable with their reading.  What great readers!

Thank you so much to the Nebo Foundation for funding a Grant and also to our amazing PTA and our wonderful Principal Duncan for contributing matching funds for new music equipment. These funds will be used towards a classroom set of hand drums. The hand drums will be used to explore rhythms and beats. The students will be able to play written rhythms and create some of their own. Since the hand drums are different sizes, they will have different tones and pitches to create fun music. All Cherry Creek students kindergarten through 6th grade will enjoy these drums for many years to come. We are so excited to try them out!

Miss Sahlin Receives Grant for iPad Mini

The following is statement made by Miss Sahlin:I am so thankful for the Nebo Education Foundation and their willingness to support the use of technology in the classroom. They have helped add another iPad and avenue for learning into the hands of my students. Their support has helped to create a more engaging environment.  I believe students will be more motivated in their learning. Having the use of an iPad will allow them to research topics they are curious about, practice different skills and bring their own creations to life. 
The struggling readers in my class will enhance their phonics instruction by utilizing many different phonics and reading apps available for education. Many students will use the iPad to help in the memorization of math facts. The majority of my students will be using the iPad to play math games to support their math understanding.

Recently Mrs. Kristi Jensen's class went on a Farm Field Day at Harward Farms in Springville. Students were excited to see a sheep sheared, they thought it was fun to touch the wool. The students moved from station to station learning about something new at each one. They learned all about bees, farm animals, and farm safety.  At one of the stations the students got to make a necklace: which is a small plastic bags strung on yarn, the students got to plant a wheat seed in the dampened cotton in the bag. They then got to wear their necklaces home. It was a fun educational field trip and the students really enjoyed it!

What do Mom's, Muffin's and Math have in Common? Students!Mom's came to Art City Elementary School on Friday March 28, 2014, to eat muffins and do math with their students in the third-grade classes.   The students showed their moms how they could do math while enjoying a muffin. Moms were wowed by the activities and games their children were engaged in. Even Miss Murdock's mom, Janine Murdock, took time away from Springville Jr. High to be a "Mom". Thank you, moms (and a couple of dads) for taking time out of your busy mornings to come and do math with us.
