On Wednesday, February 23rd, the Provo District Dental Alliance (dentist's wives) ‘treated’ the 2nd grade students at Sage Creek to an amazing marionette show, in support of National Dental Health month.  The puppets taught the children the importance of taking good care of their teeth by brushing twice a day, flossing once each day, eating healthy foods, and visiting their dentist twice a year!

Valentine's Day at Sage Creek!

If I could be the postman for just one single time,
I'd choose to carry Valentines so lovely and so fine.
I would not mind the heavy load, or mind my tired feet.
If I could scatter happiness all up and down the street.

Cupid was alive and well at Sage Creek on February 14th.
The second grade students participated in classroom
rotation celebrations including:  cookie decorating, word
searches, candy heart graphs, holiday stories, passing out
valentines, valentine glyphs, and decorating containers.
"It was the BEST day ever," one student said as she left
with her spoils!

At Sage Creek Elementary we had our very own Second Grade
Science Fair on Friday, February 11th. Each class focused
on a second grade core topic and conducted simple
experiments and observations. We placed our projects on
display in our individual classrooms and rotated through
each other's rooms to see what was discovered. Thanks for
your encouragement and excitement for science!!

Job Shadow Day at Sage Creek

On Wednesday, February 2nd, student Caden Brown from Mapleton Junior High School joined Mrs. Brown's second grade class at Sage Creek Elementary for their annual 7th Grade Job Shadow Day. Caden read some of his very own stories he had published back in second grade to the students. He also worked with them on multi-digit math problems and winter art projects. He was able to participate in their reading stratgey discussion during Readers' Workshop on 'questioning', in addition to enjoying a fun-filled inside recess, due to the freezing temperatures outside. When asked what he liked best about the day, he said, "Just hanging out with the kids!" Thanks Caden, and MJHS, for sharing your 'budding' teaching talents with us!

For tomorrow will be 101 .. so let the celebrations begin!

There were all kinds of fun activities to celebrate having spent 100 exciting days learning, i.e., 100 piece puzzles, triple-digit math problems, games with the hundred board, read 100 books, write 100 words, etc.  At the end of the day, we made 100th Day Stew with each students' 100 items they brought to add!
