Fourth-grade students from Goshen Elementary took a field trip to the Hutching's Museum in Lehi. Students learned more about science and Utah's history. They saw many types of rocks, fossils, and minerals that are found in Utah. They learned about the Native Americans that lived here and saw some arrowheads, drums, and how they used animals and crops. They also learned about the pioneers and lifted up the heavy irons they used for clothes. One of the students' favorite parts was learning about the Wild West where they were locked up in an old jail cell.
Mrs. Margaret Allinson's third graders have been learning about motions of figures in their geometry unit. They performed a dance showing slides, translations, reflections, rotations, turns, and flips. Students had fun coming up with their moves and using their math knowledge to dance. Pictured is Talia Ehlers, Ahsee Blu, Palmer Gutke, Keaton Broderick, and Jose Vazquez.
The Orchestra from Payson Junior High came out to Goshen Elementary to show their instruments to the sixth graders. The sixth grade students will be going to junior high next year and will be able to do band or orchestra, so this was a good opportunity for them to see what instruments they can play. The sixth graders found out how easy it is to play an instrument when their classmate, Makade Cowan, went up and played “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” on his first try playing the violin.
Friday, January 29 was the 100th day of school at Goshen Elementary. First and second graders rotated and did centers focused on the number 100. Some first graders, with the help of their fourth-grade reading buddies, made a list of 100 things they could eat. Students are beginning to realize they are more than halfway through the school year.
On Wednesday, January 27, the Crystal Apple Award at Goshen Elementary was given to Mrs. Julie Parkin. This is Julie's second year teaching sixth grade at Goshen Elementary. Julie has four kids and is known to some as the yard sale queen. She spends hours working at home on weekends making lessons and developing hands-on-activities for her students. Julie has been writing amazing songs to teach math and science concepts. Her students love her and enjoy coming to class every day. They know there will be some fun activities and songs to be learned. Thanks Mrs.
