Farm Field Day for Second Grade

We love farm field day! It is put on by Utah State Extension. Each class is assigned a different farm field day symbol. The students get the opportunity to go to several different stations. Some of them include: farm safety, eating healthy, washing hands, sheep herding, and a talking tomato. We also enjoyed eating our lunch at Discovery Park. The students loved wearing their awesome tie dye shirts they made at school with parent volunteers.

School and Apples

Thank you to the Rowleys for inviting Third Grade to come to the Red Barn and learn about farms in our community.  They picked us up in the wagon and took us through the orchards.   We learned what different types of blossoms look like, how to pick an apple, how to conserve water and how to keep a tree from freezing in the spring.  We got to pick an apple and eat it.  We also enjoyed a cider doughnut. Thank you Rowleys!

A Train is Comin' Down the Track

First grade has been learning about transportation as part of their map unit in social studies. To improve their writing by using adjectives (describing words), the first graders had to come up with two adjectives that described each different type of train car. They then put their story together in a train and made an accordion book to take home and read to their families. They had lots of fun integrating the art, writing, and social studies!

Students took a minute in class to share all the fun things they have learned or observed about Mr. Richins over the past month.  Each class chose a saying or two among the many that were discussed. 

We appreciate all that Mr. Richins does to make our school fun, safe, and a great place to be!

While learning about neighborhoods and maps, 1st graders practiced their art skills to make a map of Clifford, the Big Red Dog’s neighborhood. They then wrote the order of the houses so as to put a “caption” on their maps.

Mr. Rogers’ mother taught him when something bad happens, look for the helpers.  We can focus on the bad, or on the helpers. Our second graders wrote about the heroes in their lives and what makes them a hero. We are so thankful for our military heroes.
