It's no secret that some of Taylor's hardest working students are in the first grade. Students in Mrs. Oakeson's, Mrs. Clove, Mrs. Robison and Mrs. Mayhew's classes have a lot expected of them in reading, writing and math. These students not only work hard every day in class, but also on the playground, the hallway, the lunchroom and assemblies. One way these students have found succes is by using noise canceling headphones! Principal Robbins knows how important it is to always work hard in school and she wanted the first graders to do just that! She bought a set of these headphones for the first graders to use anytime they need to! Students can use headphones during writing time, reading time, independent work time or whenever they feel they need to limit any distractions. Thank you Mrs. Robbins and first grade teachers for helping our littlest learners be successful!!!!!

Mrs. Provstgaard's 3rd graders have been digging deep into all requirements of the third grade core. Students in her class have stayed focused, worked hard, scored well and have had a great attitude the entire time! As a reward for their commitment to learning, Mrs. Provstgaard's students enjoyed a little down time with some pizza and soda! It sure pays off when you work hard! We're excited to see what these 3rd graders can do!!
Taylor's third grade classes look forward to this time of year. Students in Mrs. Charles, Mrs. Ellsworth and Mrs. Provstgaard's class got their baby cabbages today with the hopes of winning the grand prize for growing the largest plant!
Each year Bonnie Plants sends out thousands of cabbage starter plants to third grade students across the nation. The students plant and care for their cabbages throughout the summer and then take a picture with the end result. Each teacher then chooses a class winner and submits it to Bonnie Plants. This program was implemented back in 2002 to encourage young people to develop a love for gardening and cultivate a better understanding of agriculture. .
Students need to keep their plants growing strong until this September for judging! If you have any questions, contact any of the 3rd grade teachers! Good luck!

Taylor's families joined each other at the school Monday night to celebrate a love of reading. Parents and students came to the school and spent the evening reading stories, practicing helpful reading strategies, using online resources, learning about new popular books and even seeing a few pirates. This night was very successful because of the wonderful support we received from our Taylor parents. To continue our love for reading, Taylor students spent the next day at school dedicating the majority of their day to literacy! Classrooms were full of Read-a-thons, word work games, read aloud's, reader's theatres and much more. Mrs. Robbins is very passionate about literacy and the important role it plays for our students. She invited EVERY student at Taylor to come to the gym and "walk the plank" to receive a brand new book! This is a tradition that will continue at Taylor for years to come!!!

4th graders at Taylor have been studying the weather in Utah. They've been learning about weather instruments, forecasts, weather data and clouds. As part of this, students were able to create their own storm the classroom! Fourth-grade student, Addison Corbin, says, "We got to make our own rainstorms by using food coloring and shaving cream. It was so cool to see the storms happening inside our cups!" What a great way to make science come alive in the classroom!
