ESL Class Writes Picture Book

by Chris Thompson

The ESL class at Spanish Fork Junior High collaborated to write their very own picture book modeled after My House Has Stars. 

Students studied a country of their choosing, then shared their findings with the format used by McDonald and Catalanotto--the book’s author and illustrator. Uruguay, France, El Salvador, Iceland, Brazil, Mexico, and the United States are all represented in their work! 

Stop by Mrs. Thompson’s room if you would like to read this masterpiece.


Ms. Warren Dishing Up Fun in CTE

by Rillene Nielsen

I scream,

You scream,

We all scream

For ice cream!

Seventh-graders in Ms. Chaleesa Warren’s CACA classes were dishing up yummy ice cream as they learned about careers in the Food Science and the Dairy industry.  Students were able to design and create their own ice cream flavors.

Sounds like a delicious lesson!
