The third grade students enjoyed a very delightful and informative day at the BYU Planetarium, as well as the Monte L. Bean Museum on Leap Day 2012.  Watching a movie on the ceiling about comets and planets helped put into perspective how big our solar system is.  Each student got to pick his/her favorite planet and learn more about it.

The Bean Museum was “stuffed” with animals, insects and habitat information. The elephant was massive and the giraffe really created a surprising display.  The black bear looked just like the Sierra Bonita Bear!   We even got to watch a Black Widow eat a cricket!  Yum, Yum!

Another highlight was walking across the sky bridge that allows safe passage to the different areas on campus.  The weather made the hike pleasant and offered students the chance enjoy one another’s company.

This year the 5th grade had planned to go snowshoeing up Diamond Fork Canyon but due to the lack of snow this winter the trip was cancelled.  The 5th grade then planned a fun trip to the Spanish Fork Library and Brigham Young University’s Museum of Art.  The library introduced and talked about new books that came out this year, helping get students excited about reading.  This was great since it was also the week of the school Read-A-Thon.  It was then off to the Museum.   Students enjoyed being on the BYU campus and were able to observe the amazing art work of both BYU students and the current exhibits, including the “Beauty and Belief”.  Students were also able to enjoy an interactive student area of the museum.   Many students had not been to this museum and enjoyed the opportunity to learn and observe the art.   It was a fun trip for all who attended.

On January 27, the First Grade celebrated the 100th day of school!  The kids wrote 100 words they knew, wrote their numbers to 100, and even licked a lolly-pop 100 times.  Students brought a bag of 100 small items that they counted and displayed on their desks.  The first graders then were able to go on a 'museum walk' around all the first grade classrooms.  We have had 100 wonderful days of first grade and can't wait for more!
