The third grade students became little entrepreneurs today for their 3rd Grade Market.  They had the opportunity to learn a little about commerce.  They have been earning and saving “play” money for good classroom behavior.  All the students offered some sort of goods or service.  Some of the items for sale were:  food, small trinkets and toys and an assortment of games to play, some even offered fingernail painting.   They each got to take the money they have earned and spend it anyway they want.  It was a fun and educational experience.

The Kindergarten classes celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday the week of March 3-7, 2014.  They participated in many fun activities.  They dressed as their favorite character, made and wore Cat in the Hat hat’s, had a crazy sock day, and read many of Dr. Seuss’ classic books. Theodor Geisel or better known as, Dr. Seuss the beloved children’s book author, was born March 4, 1904. He would have been 110 years old this year.  All across America schools and children celebrate his life and writings by focusing activities around his birthday.   In honor of his birthday here are some of his most loved quotes, courtesy of Parade:  

1. “With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you’re too smart to go down any not-so-good street.”

2. “Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting so get on your way!”

3. “You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And you’re the one who’ll decide where to go.”

4. “Oh the things you can find if you don’t stay behind!”

5. “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

6. “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

7. “You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”

8. “If you never did you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.”

9. “If things start happening, don’t worry. Don’t stew. Just go right along. You’ll start happening too.”

10. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

11. “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

12. “I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

13. “So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that life’s a Great Balancing Act.”

14. “Oh, the things you can find if you don’t stay behind!”

15. “Will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)”

16. “Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”

17. “You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”

18. “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

The Spanish Fork Jr. High School Band visited the sixth-graders at East Meadows on March 13, 2014.    Mr. Wendell, the Band teacher, gave them a quick overview of the program.  The Jr. High students then played a piece they have been practicing.  Some of the students were allowed to touch and play the instruments if they were interested. The SFJH Orchestra also visited the previous day. It is time for the sixth-graders to decide if they want to play in the Band or Orchestra next year.
