Miss Hamblin’s class went to the Hearthstone Manor. We sang songs for the elderly. We sang “Jingle Bells,” “We Wish you a Merry Christmas,” and “Rudolph.” Mrs. Morley played her guitar. A few elderly people were singing along. Their voices were beautiful! We gave them some candy canes and a wreath that we each had made. We sang to two different groups. It was fun. Afterward we picked up trash on the way back to the school.
"I asked her how much it took to write her books. One took a week and a half!" Brody
"It was really cool! I got to share my dreams. My dream is to be a vet and an artist." Madison
"It's amazing when you get to meet a real author! It felt good." Brighton
The mining presentation was really fun. We talked about what miners do, mining safety, and how they get samples from the ground (core samples). Everybody got a cupcake and pretended to take core samples. We got a straw and stuck it in the cupcake and took it out. It had three layers. Some people had more chocolate than others, that means they would have more to mine. After that we ate the rest of the cupcake. It was so good!
So first we were on the school bus. Our school came to the symphony, and so did the rest of the fourth grade in the Nebo School District. When we went in Salem Hills High School, and the place where the orchestra was playing was huge! The whole orchestra was tuning their instruments. They started playing quietly and then they got louder and louder. The started playing a few songs that our class knew. The music was very peaceful, well most of it at least. Some of the music was loud and quick. The beautiful music probably made most of our class fall asleep.
Canyon Elementary had a special visitor on Dec. 1. It was a clown. We didn't know April was a clown until the middle of the assembly that the PTA sponsored. She taught us about the importance of good nutrition, hydration and plenty of sleep. Several students were chosen to help with demonstrations on stage. Rowen wrote, "I, Rowen, loved the experience to go on stage and meet Mrs. April. I loved to learn how to juggle."
