The first-graders just finished their "Pumsy" unit with the school counselor, Mrs. Andria Lewis.  Pumsy helped the students learn about:  being able to do hard things, being special, how to take a self-time out, how to get over their fears, and adjusting to change.  If you have a first-grader, ask them what they learned from Pumsy!

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

Submitted by calleen.argyle on Wed, 11/07/2012 - 11:23

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.
