Fourth and fifth graders at Taylor Elementary have been working hard on remembering what their E.A.R.S. are for...reading out loud! Reading with Expression, Accuracy, Rate and Smoothness are things that a good reader does when they're reading aloud. Each Friday, the classes have the chance to show off their skills by reading to the three first grade classes. This is a fun opportunity for both grades to look forward to because it gives them a chance to practice reading, make new friends, and learn from each other.

As part of Nebo's GAINS program, all Taylor teachers are receiving specific training in music during the 2016-2017 school year.  Teachers spent the day using beat, rhythm, instruments and patterns to connect  to multiplication, division, fractions, number lines, and so much more!   Song lyrics were used to discuss theme, symbolism and interpretation.  This was an exciting day for teachers to celebrate their love for the arts and get specific instruction of how to use it best in their classrooms.
