Mrs. Jarvis's 4th grade class learned about the beliefs and culture of the Pauite tribe of Utah. They used movement and space to recreate different Utah animals, plants and landforms.
Why will kids ask ten times when recess is but then want to stay in for the whole break to organize markers?
Why do kids forget where to indent in a letter but remember the name of my guinea pig I had when I was in the third grade, and why my dad washed my mouth out with soap when I was eight?
Why do kids write “THE END” so big?
Why do kids know precisely how many days, hours, and minutes are left till their birthdays but still ask, “When’s lunch?”
Mrs. Jensen's class has been learning about being a bucket filler and not a bucket dipper. We have learned that each of us has an invisible bucket. When we do nice things for people we are filling their bucket. When we do not so nice things we are dipping into the other person's bucket. When our bucket is full, we feel great. When it's empty, we feel awful. We all want to be a bucket filler!
