They organize their research, write, rewrite, and publish a brochure filled with photos and facts about both their chosen Utahan, and themselves. Then they memorizes a monolog and dress up as their star—Sports figures, religious leaders, scientist, historical figures are just a few of those we were able to meet.  Jake Provstgaard our ESL Technician knows David Archuleta so when he saw Kambrie Ivie, a 4th grade student in Miss. Jasmine Ostrander class, he thought it was great! Me took her photo, and texted it to David right then! Within minutes, David replied “She Looks Great!” 

Another cool story is Brynley Baird, in Mr. Todd Bradford’s class was Megan Falkner Brown more commonly known as The Sweet Tooth Fairy found out that she was being highlighted, donated cake bites!

All the students did a great job! And their peers were an awesome audience, clapping and cheering after each song!

Fourth Grade Visits Camp Floyd

Taylor Elementary News - Fri, 05/16/2014 - 11:09am

Taylor fourth grade students in Mrs. Corbin, Mrs. Grill and Ms. Orme's classes recently visited historic Camp Floyd.  Students took a step back in time and were able to experience life in the famous Utah military camp.  Students spent the day making adobe bricks, dipping candles, attending pioneer school, riding in the pony express as well as going through artillery training.  This is a fun way for students to see a piece of Utah history come alive!  Everyone on site was dressed in character and students learned a lot from the stories told by them about the history of the military camp.  Fourth-grade student, Jesse Daley, said, "My favorite part was making candles because it was cool to make them from hot wax. It took a long time to get them to be big."   Many thanks go to the many parent volunteers that make this field trip possible for the fourth-grade classes!
