November 9, 2012, members of the Spanish Fork Veterans of Foreign Wars, came to Canyon Elementary to present a special Veterans' Day assembly.  Students got to watch a video showing service men and women serving in the military and they also go to hear members of the Spanish Fork Veterans tell a little bit about what they did and where they served when they were in the military.  Then at the conclusion, they played taps as the flags were retired and Canyon Elementary students sang "I'm Proud to be an American" to say Thank You to our veterans.

Marshmallow Math

Students in Mrs. Jenna Reid's second grade class got to learn about place value with "Marshmellow Math". Each marshmellow stood for a place value; ones, tens, and hundreds. Students got to stack cereal pieces on toothpicks sticking out from each marshmellow. Then they counted the cereal pieces from each of the place value marshmellows and wrote the number in standard and expanded notation form.

The Museum of Natural History came from Salt Lake City to Canyon Elementary's fourth-grade classes and brought many different animal samples for the students to explore.  Students wrote down observations they made about the samples as well as questions they formed while making observations.  All four fourth-grade classes were involved.  Students learned a lot and had a great time.
