4th Grade Visit

            Our principal is the best! Ms. Call came and visited Mrs. Robbin's 4th grade classroom this week to read a story about The Human Race, by Jamie Lee Curtis.  She brought her chair with her to use as part of a visual demonstration on the mathematics concept of place value.  Her chair  represented the million's place in our chair place value order.    She is a million dollar principal!  In fact,  we would put her in the quindecillion place value if we could which  is the highest place value that these fourth graders learned about that day!

The Water Van

            On September 22, 2011 the Water Van workers from the Living Planet Aquarium came to Sage Creek Elementary.  The Water Van group visits different schools every day and fiinally it was Sage Creek’s turn. 

Learning at Diamond Fork Forest

Sage Creek Elementary 4th graders got to visit Diamond Fork Forest, and hike the Discovery Trail.   They saw a teepee, a beaver dam and some educational signs. Sage Creek Elementary students have created some of the signs that are on the trail. They also got to test the water quality of the river. It turned different colors depending on if the water was healthy or not.

Second Grade Apple Field Trip

On Wednesday, September 21st, the second grade students from Sage Creek Elementary were treated to a tour of a local apple orchard! We saw pears, pumpkins, sunflowers, deer tracks, grapes, peaches, bee hives, and most important . . . APPLES! We learned that apples need water, soil and sunlight to grow and that it took 50 years for these apple trees to get as big as they are today.  The students will use the apples they picked in math, reading and writing activities aligned with the new Utah Core Standards.  Thank you to Mrs.
