Today the fifth graders worked with Rachel Kimball, Nebo School District's dance specialist, to learn about the elements of dance as applied to social studies. The students learned the original 13 colonies, the etymology of their names, and then created short dances to portray the names of each colony. Each group then performed their dance while the rest of the class watched and then labeled the colony on a map.

At the end of kindergarten, the kindergarten students were invited to read and do learning activities during the summer. Eleven of those students completed the challenge and were invited to a picnic lunch with the kindergarten teachers. It was fun to hear how the students are enjoying first grade. Congratulations to those students for their hard work.
This week Miss Smith's class had a visit from Mr. Sainsbury, who is now the Coordinator for Food Services for Nebo School District. With plans to add new foods to the elementary breakfast and lunch menu, Mr. Sainsbury and his team needed to find out which foods kids prefer, so they brought a few new items for the class to sample, and then rate. The class had a great time and looks forward to possibly seeing some of those things in their lunchroom in the future!
