Mrs. Stewart

We have been learning about force and motion in third grade for the last couple of weeks. Today Mrs. Stewart’s class experimented with golf balls and ping pong balls trying to get them onto a target by applying force. They had so much fun and had a great discussion about mass of an object and applying force to move the objects.

Teacher Spotlight Miss McKendrick, Fourth Grade

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Mon, 01/27/2020 - 14:30

Miss Mckendrick is a 4th grade teacher here at Spanish Oaks.  Her favorite part about teaching is the kids' funny personalities and stories that they tell.  If she wasn’t a teacher she would be a famous singer and dancer because she is amazing at singing and dancing.  Her dream vacation would be somewhere warm like by a beach in Hawaii, with Acai Bowls.  She grew up in American Fork and Highland, Utah. Her favorite season is spring because everybody seems happier and the flowers are gorgeous.  She loves to learn and she hopes not only for others to learn but for others to be kind.

A huge “shout out” to Cole Valentine, bus driver extraordinaire!  Mr. Valentine chauffeured all of our Spanish Oaks 3rd grade students to and from our BYU women’s basketball game Kids Day field trip today and he was the best.  He regaled us with stories about why school buses are painted yellow, how many fans are on the school bus and how many gallons of diesel fuel a school bus holds.  We learned a lot and had a super good time!  Thank you, Mr. Valentine, for keeping us entertained and getting us to and from our destination safely.  You are truly a Nebo Hero!

Mrs. Stewart’s class has been learning about character traits. Today they got to play a game where they matched a character's description with a trait. Each group had such wonderful discussions about their ideas and they all did such great job matching the correct description with the word.
