As part of the GAINS (Growing Arts In Nebo Schools) program, Salem Elementary 3rd-6th grade teachers have been dancing with their students! Dance Integration, as with all Arts Integration, is a growing field that employs the arts to teach core concepts in Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts. Nebo School District and Salem Elementary are honing their skills at Arts Integration! 3rd grade danced as they learned about angles, rays, line segments, and end points.
Students look forward to the stories that our principal, Mr. Welburn shares with us. This month he read Too Many Toys by David Shannon. It is about a boy who has so many toys that it is time to give some away, but there is one toy he can't part with, and that is a box! It was a fun story that reminded us that sometimes all we need to have fun is a little creativity and some imagination.
In fourth grade, students learn about fossils. They learn about the different types and fossils, how they are formed, and where these fossils can be found in Utah.
The first type of fossils students learned about was imprint fossils. After learning about them, students made their own mold and cast fossils using clay, sea shells, and plaster of paris.
What a wintery welcome we had coming back to school today! We appreciate your patience with the schedule change and hope you all had a safe and wonderful Christmas break. Here are a few pics from our Christmas Assembly. We had SHHS choir come and sing, who were truly amazing. We thank them for sharing their talent with us. We also had each grade level take a turn singing a Christmas song. A big thanks to our music teacher, Miss Priday, for all of her hard work in teaching and preparing our students for this fun school tradition.
