Kindy 500

Attributions: 

VAROOOOM!  It's the Kindy 500 in Kindergarten!  The kindergarten children had a fun-filled day zooming across America to learn all about our country’s National Symbols!  The children came in their own custom designed cars and cruised in luxury to each Historical Site!  Thanks to the many volunteers who helped the children learn such valuable lessons!

Seussville

Dr. Seuss had a great love for children and for reading. The way he used rhyme made his books a great tool for teaching children the basic skills needed to be successful.  

Mt. Loafer teachers helped students celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday by reading his books aloud and planning fun classroom activites because at Mt. Loafer we know that reading is fun and important. 

 

We're In It Together

We should all learn how to walk in another person's shoes for a while, or, if you are from Mrs. Gwynn's class, more appropriately, how to ride another person's wheelchair. 

While it is true that there can be differences among students, there are also lots of things that are the same.  Mrs. Hancock and Mrs. Gwynn are teaming up to help children learn that all people want to be treated with kindness and respect.

Pat Bradley, second-grade teacher at Mt. Loafer Elementary, said, “We are so excited to have received this grant from Nebo Education Foundation.  We are producing a Musical Theatre production entitled “E-I-E-I-OOPS”. It is a well known fact that the arts reinforce learning and provide opportunities for children to express themselves and apply the principles learned.

Bobsled Results

The bobsled competition is in the books at the 2014 Mt. Loafer Winter Olympics.  Team Bradley-McKee-Jenkins was able to bring home an impressive win.

Let The Games Begin!

Mt. Loafer teachers were going for the Gold!  They got into the spirit of the Winter Olympic Games, competing for gold, silver, and bronze in the curling, bobsled, and biatholon events!  Students were also treated to an exhibition figure skating program in between events. 

 

 

 

 

 

Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?

Walking through the cafeteria at Mt. Loafer Elementary School on Friday, February 21st, a visitor might not have felt smarter than a fifth-grader.

The room was filled with experiments for the annual science fair, ranging from can you bounce an egg, can electricity come from rocks or air, and does doodling make you listen better.

The Arts Matter!

Attributions: 

Mt. Loafer teachers are learning creative ways to integrate the arts into the curriculum in order to enrich learning for every child. The arts open doors to creativity. They nourish critical thinking. 

Take a peek at the tornadoes fourth grade students are painting.  They are studying weather and integrating arts into their science and writing lessons.
