Taylor Elementary is full of fantastic spellers!  Recently, the annual third-grade spelling bee was held in the gym of Taylor Elementary.  This year's competition was tough because the students in Mrs. Whitney Buys and Mrs. Melanie Ellsworth's classes have been practicing for quite some time memorizing words in order to become the new spelling bee champion! Parents along with the second and third-grade classes were invited to come watch the top spellers from each class participate. It was an extremely fun day for all participants.

Taylor Elementary's students focus on reading each day. Fifth-grade students in Mrs. Robin Provstgaard's class love to make reading come alive in their classroom.  Their class recently read a story entitled, La Bamba, by Gary Soto where the character participates in a lip-sync.  Taylor's fifth-graders used the experiences of the character in the story and created their own lip-sync performances using their favorite songs. The perfomances were entertaining and the students enjoyed cheering each other on!   Way to go fifth-grade for sharing your love of reading!

Taylor's fifth-grade teachers love to engage their students in learning.  The students in Ms. Marlayne Harward, Mrs. Robin Provstgaard and Mr. Ien Richin's classes have been studying fractions and spent time testing their knowledge of :"equal parts of a whole" using real life objects....frosted cookies!   Students were challenged to use their thinking to frost certain portions and reason with one another which equivalent fractions they had frosted.  Thank you teachers for making fractions part of the students' lives at Taylor!
