This week Governor Herbert came to SpringLake to talk to the fifth graders.  We got to dress in nice clothes and go to the gym and listen to him talk to us about his years as the Governor of Utah.  The rest of the school had the opportunity to watch his visit on Zoom.    Thank you Governor Herbert!

State Reports from Mr. Ewell and Mr. Lai's Classes.

Each kid in the fifth grade gets to do a fantastic state report. You get to do a choice project they can do a board with details about the state with cool pictures. Each kid gets to do a different state. When you do this state report you learn a lot about different states like I got to learn about Nevada and Georgia those states are pretty cool. In Mr. Lai’s classroom, we like to learn about states so this was a great way to learn about almost every state.

I-Ready SuperBowl Contest

Submitted by jeremy.barber on Thu, 02/18/2021 - 11:55

This year’s I-Ready Super Bowl Contest was so much fun.

This year we had class winners for highest minutes on I-Ready, and we had individual MVP’s for the most lessons passed and the highest minutes completed!  The students were engaged and excited each day as they walked down the hall and looked at the scoreboard…but why did we do it, and what really mattered in the end?

Student’s learned and improved in amazing ways.  I-Ready is designed to work with students at their level.  Each  lesson is designed to build students understanding and comprehension, not just their ability to perform.  It works through core concepts and builds a students knowledge in a sequential format that enhances what they are learning in class, or fills in gaps and holes in areas they have missed or not had enough practice and instruction in.  Some students excelled beyond their grade levels and gained deeper instruction pushing them further in their education.  Some students pulled from behind, filling in holes and bringing them closer to their grade level.  

Each student that participated, worked, and used their time to complete I-Ready lessons are the REAL WINNERS because they learned, improved, and stretched their brains to new levels of understanding! 

We are so proud of each student’s efforts and improvements!
