Our teacher, Miss Hamblin, assigned us to bring ice cream buckets to make (paint) drums out of the buckets. Each fourth grade class brought in 30 or more buckets! We took the buckets to the art room. There were different colors to paint them with, but we had to put dish soap in the paint to get the paint to stay on the plastic.  When they were painted we waited a day for them to dry. We are using the drums in our 4th Grade program in March. Thanks to Mrs. Jex for helping us complete this fun project.

High School Letterman Club visits Canyon

Submitted by jeanette.maughan on Tue, 02/23/2016 - 09:37

First, we were donating stuffed animals to poor kids who could not afford them just before Christmas.  We were having a contest between all the classes to see who could donate the most stuffed animals.  After Christmas they announced that Mrs. Hamblin´s class won at Canyon Elementary.  So the high school kids came and brought us donuts for a reward.  It was fun to hang out with them, and they were really nice to us.  While we were eating donuts we challenged them to a multiplication game our class made up called Doritos. The whole class had a good time.

Valentines Party in Fourth Grade

Submitted by jeanette.maughan on Tue, 02/23/2016 - 09:30

For our Valentines party the first thing we did was pass Valentines to everyone in our class. After that we had a party.  At the party one of the games was where you had to suck up a candy heart with a straw. One of the moms was doing a root beer floats and we also had to figure out a scrambled word puzzle. We also did a lot of other fun games like Don’t Eat Pete, Bingo, and Minute to Win It. We'd like to say thanks to the PTA Moms who planned such a fun party!
