Champions Challenge Assembly

Attributions: 

The Champions Challenge officially kicked off this week with a special assembly that touched on the importance of reading and Nebo School District’s “Choose2Matter” theme. It featured Miss Rodeo 2017 McKenna Hales and barrelman and rodeo clown Kevin Higley showing off their skills and teaching lessons.

Through the Champion Rodeo Reading Challenge students are being encouraged to read as much as they can for a chance to participate in the June rodeo and win some cowboy gear.

The two winners from our school will get to help with the rodeo’s opening ceremonies and receive a new pair of boots, jeans and cowboy hat.

Mrs. Nelson was a good sport and participated in the clown's act!

Make sure your students read this month and keep track of their hours. At the end of the month they can turn in their reading calendar and put their name in the drawing to be the representatives for our school.

Rain Forest Van Visits East Meadows

Attributions: 

 

Last week second grade had an opportunity to have the Rainforest Van visit us from the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. Students learned about the 7 continents and where rainforests are located on our Earth. They were able to meet some amazing animals from each of these rainforests and learn about features of the animal, its role in the rainforest and other facts. Students had the opportunity to ask questions about and even touch most of the animals.

 

DISCOVERING THROUGH DANCE

Attributions: 

"3rd grade students use shape and movement to reflect different kinds of simple machines."

This week through the GAINS program (Growing Arts In Nebo Schools), students discovered new ways of learning through dance and movement.  

3rd grade classes learned a "Simple Machines" folk dance and then created their own simple machines using shape and movement.

4th grade teachers each honed in on a specific science topic they teach as part of their science rotations.  Mrs. Cropper taught the water cycle using white scarves that represent water droplets.  Mrs. Lambert used filmy drop cloth along with dance and movement to show different kinds of clouds.  Mrs. Wrathall used movement to teach Rocks and Minerals--believe it or not!!  And Mrs. Johnson brought alive classifications of vertebrates with movement qualities that can reflect their characteristics.  

 

5th grade used dance to demonstrate qualities of static and current electricity!  One holds its place and the other travels--do you know which is which?  Your 5th grader probably does!

 

6th grade gave sight to sound as we used a filmy substance and movement to reflect how sound waves work.  

 

Dance is an excellent way for students to embody their learning.  Studies show that when students move while learning, they retain the information better and longer.  Way to go East Meadows!
