Kindergarteners Love to Write
Kindergarten classes have been learning a lot this year! One of their favorite things to do is WRITE! Students in Mrs. Platt, Mrs. Wickel and Mrs. Lowe’s classes have been working hard increasing their writing skills by practicing letter formation, finger spaces and even words! We can’t wait to see what these tiny tigers can do!
Thanksgiving Point Visits 3rd Grade
Third graders are learning about life cycles and were lucky enough to have Thanksgiving Point Outreach Program visit! Students studied the life cycles of beetles and tulip bulbs by observing, recording and making models. Students' favorite part was the new addition to their classrooms...a terrarium filled with grass seed to watch the stages of the life cycle! (There may be a few creepy crawlies in the soil as well!) Thank you Thanksgiving Point for helping science come alive for our students!
We Love Mrs. Mayhew!
Mrs. Mayhew has a new job this year...she is our ESSR Reading Intervention teacher and works with students in every grade. After teaching Kindergarten, 1st grade and 4th grade, she has an extensive background in literacy instruction. Students who work with Mrs. Mayhew on a daily basis are deepening their reading and phonics skills in a variety of ways. Taylor is so lucky to have her as a resource to ensure all students will learn at high levels, especially in reading!
Do You Want to Build a Snowman...with Kindergarten!
Taylor's tiny tigers enjoyed the first snowfall of the year building snowmen! Kindergarteners learn a lot about teamwork and collaboration. They needed to work together as friends to build some creative snowmen for all to enjoy!
Discovery Gateway Visits our Kindergarten!
Kindergarten classes received a visit from Discovery Gateway. They learned all about the motions of push and pull. They all agreed that if they ever did tug of war with three ropes, that they wanted to be on team three where no one was pulling against them.
3rd Grade Field Trip!
Third graders enjoyed a Halloween field trip to the Scera Theater in Orem. Students watched a live performance of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow! At the end of the performance, the actors, let students ask questions about their experiences in the play. It was a perfect way to spend Halloween!
Halloween at Taylor is always an exciting time! Teachers dressed up as storybook characters with classics such as Wizard of Oz and Three Blind Mice, to newer favorites such as Matilda, Where’s Waldo and Harry Potter! Students paraded around the school enjoying Halloween music and waving at their friends and families! Thank you parents for supporting our students in their parade and classroom activities!
