Mrs. Snelgrove' Students Learn About Traditions


Mrs. Snelgrove' third grade students learned about holiday traditions in several countries.  They learned that Mexico has a tradition of making pinatas.  Each student was able to make their own and then paint it.  They also learned that Holland has a tradition of placing chocolate initials at the table place setting. Each of her students made their initial in chocolate.

Kool Karate

Mrs. Harward's Third Graders learned how to do karate, thanks to Mr. Brooks from Bobby Lawrence Karate.  He taught us three things about focus which are eyes, body, and mind.  He then taught us how to do a side kick.  We were reminded that karate is used in self defense not for being a bully. Afterward, a few students got the chance to break a practice board.  Last but not least, Mrs. Harward broke a real board with her hand.  Watch out for Mrs. Harward!

Miss Santaquin

Miss Santaquin, Nikki Mortensen, came to our school and taught us about emotions.  We watched clips from the movies, "Inside Out" and "The Grinch".  She taught us to recognize the emotions we are feeling and to take responsibility for them.
