All About Native Americans

Mrs. Beyal, from the Title Vll department at Nebo School District, visited our second graders on Monday.  She taught us an important lesson: we are all children of different colors.  We sang a Native American song in sign language, learned about a loom, how to make a rug, their homes and more.  Thank you for coming!

Pumpkin Investigations

Attributions: 

Mrs. Keisel’s second grade class had so much fun exploring pumpkins.  We estimated the number of lines and seeds in a pumpkin and listed adjectives to describe the outside and inside of a pumpkin.  There were a few students who had never carved or seen the inside of one before!  It was a sticky, smelly, gooey, squishy time!

We had a special visit from several Veterans from Spanish Fork today for our Veterans Day Assembly.  The second grade students sang the National Anthem in sign language today and the assembly ended with all students standing and singing “God Bless the U.S.A.”       

We are thankful for all of the courageous men and women who have served, and who are currently serving, our country.  We are so lucky to live where we do.  Thank you!
