Thursday May 16, 2013 Larsen 4th Grade visited "This Is The Place" in Salt Lake City. They started the day by attending school, meeting their new teacher and learning new school rules, then everyone headed over to pull or push a handcart. 4th Graders watched and learned a little about being a Blacksmith and then it was off for a ride around the park on the train for a history lesson. We ate our sack lunches then boarded the buses and leaped through time back to 2013 and arrived safe and sound at Larsen. Way To Go Leopards!!
Larsens “Mr. B,” the Beekeeper (also known as Mr. Bingham, School Counselor) amazed Larsen’s Kindergarteners by showing them how bees make honey, giving out tastes of honey from his own hives and showing the fancy clothes beekeepers wear. Our Kindergarteners also learned about the different kinds of Bees, workers, queens, drones, guards, and fanners. Thank you Mr. B!!
Friday May 17, 2013 Larsen Elementary was presented with a check from Sonic Drive Inn for Larsens Sonic Night. This year Larsen made the most money out of any other schools who have done Sonic Night in our area. Thank you Sonic and WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Larsen Elementary second graders recently took a field trip to the Farm Field Days at harwood Farms in Springville. We learned about farming and how important agriculture is to everyone. We started off the day seeing how a sheep gets a hair cut, the farmers like to call it sheering. As the days get warmer the sheep love to get rid of their heavy winter wool coat.
We learned about bees, chickens, sheep and cows. We learned about where milk, beef, and eggs come from. We learned to eat healthy good foods for our bodies to be strong and healthy. We had a terrific day at the Harwood Farm. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!!!
Larsen Elementary 4-H students have been having quite the fun lately with lots of exciting classes. This last session of 4-H classes have been extra fun and we are sad to see them ending so quickly. The students got to choose from Dance, Bento Food Art, Creatviity Corner, Open Gym, Track & Field, Watercolor, Chess or Soccer. We want to thank all of the awesome teachers who have helped to make this mini 4-H session the very best. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Larsen Elementary's Fourth Graders have been learning about Utah pioneers and traveled back in time to the 1850s. Dressed as Pioneers, they celebrated this day by playing pioneer games, churning butter, pioneer cooking and crafts. The highlight of the daywas dancing the Virginia Reel and the Texas Star for and with their parents. Even Mr. Anderson joined in on all of the fun. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!!
Larsen Elementary recently held its annual Science Fair. Hundreds of hours went into the wonderful projects and experiments dipslayed by 5th and 6th grade students. Students researched how popcorn pops, plant growth, light, altitude, static electricity, soap bubbles and many more exciting and educational topics. Thank you and congratulations to all of those who participated. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Our 4th grade students recently took some time and created Leopard picture collages. Each one of the 4th grade students were given a piece to a picture of a Leopard. The students then colored the pieces and the pictures were put together to create a leopard! They all turned out amazing. Way To Go Leopards!!
First Graders Celebrate 100 Days of School!!
On January 28th, first graders at Larsen Elementary celebrated their 100th day of school! Everyone knows that a celebration calls for. . .cake and balloons!
It was a fun-filled day full of cake, streamers, balloons, confetti and various activities. Every first grader brought 100 things from home to put on their desks to display for our 100th Day Parade. Each first grade class was able to parade through the other first grade rooms and observe all of the creative things other first graders brought to show. Some of these items consisted of 100 pennies, water balloons, legos, candies, etc.
Another fun activity consisted of drawing a self-portrait of what our first graders think they might look like at 100 years old! A lot of them looked pretty good for their age!
We love school (and cake too) and are 100 days smarter! :)
