Loveland Planet Aquarium

Today we had the Loveland Planet Aquarium visit 4th grade. We absolutely loved having them come. They introduced the three biomes of Utah (wetland, desert, and forest), but mainly focused on wetland. The students did some fun games where they had to listen to animal sounds to figure out what animal lives near a UTAH wetland, look at zoomed in pictures to see if they could identify the animal, and put their hand in a mystery box to see if they could guess what was in the box (yeah, they were stressing a little to stick their hands into a container and not know what was inside:)). They were also able to learn how important soil is to the wetland environment. They observed a diagram of how water comes into the land and can cause flooding. They were also able to learn how important it is that we help take care of our environment by not littering and putting bad things into our lakes, oceans, rivers, and streams. Afterward, they looked at some different animals such as: a woodhouse's toad, a tiger salamander, a king snake, and a gopher snake. They absolutely loved it and learned so much information. It was great having the Loveland Planet Aquarium with us today!

Please enjoy these fun pictures!

First Week

Dear Parents,

We have had a wonderful first week! We have talked about rules and procedures each day to help each of them do their best in our classroom as well as different locations throughout the school. We have also taken a few tests (which have not been fun), but they have all been a good sport about it. 

Many students have still not picked a county yet to present on. I will be making the schedule of when each student will be presenting them over the next week. If your child has a certain county they would like to do their report on please email me soon! For the blue class these counties are already taken so please pick one that is not listed here: Cache, Garfield, Grand, Kane, Salt Lake, Sevier, Summit, Uintah, Utah, Washington, and Weber. 
For the yellow class these counties are already taken so please pick one that is not listed here: Cache, Grand, Millard, Rich, Sanpete, Summit, Wasatch, Washington.


It has been so fun getting to know all the students. They are doing an amazing job at following the rules in my classroom and working extra hard each day. Please tell them to keep up the good work!

Welcome

Welcome back to school! I am so excited for the school year to begin. We are going to be learning about so many fun and interesting things this year. We will be learning about the water cycle, rocks, Utah, math facts, literacy novels, vocabulary, and many more!
This first week of school we will be taking some pre-assessments and reviewing procedures and classroom rules.  We will also be starting our literacy program, Journeys, as well as math.
This week we will be doing some fun getting to know you activities and having a good time. I know many of you already know each other, but I cannot wait to meet all of you and get to know all of your likes, dislikes, enjoyments, and sweet personalities. 
Our time together will be crunched because we will be switching each day with the Chinese class at lunchtime.  We only have 2 hours and 20 minutes together each day and we are going to work extra hard to get all of our learning in during that short time.  During their 2+ hour block we will be doing our literacy program (reading, writing, grammar, fluency, etc), math, social studies, and science.  It will be a lot of fun, but it is extremely important to come each day ready and to do your part! 

I hope you are as excited as I am about coming to school! I can't wait to meet all of you and to go on this new adventure with you.

Mrs. Jarvis
