Student Blog
We challenged MVE students to write in a way they not normally be exposed - a BLOG!  Students were given a couple of constraints:

the topic had to be Mountain View,
their post had to be at least 6 sentences,
they had to delineate if it was fiction or non-fiction,
they had to complete the work on their own time,
had to meet a deadline!

The 2nd graders who post are all volunteers!  No matter their writing ability - they are challenging themselves both in a new creative arena as well as in time management.  1st graders who post were nominated by their teachers!  Check back each Friday (starting Friday Feb 16th, 2018) for our newest post.  You can also subscribe to our blog to get the new posts pushed to you automatically!  We hope you enjoy our STUDENT BLOG!

By Jack K.           Like, Love, Could be better

Like: What I like about Mountain View Elementary School is lunch, carpool, and music.           Love: What I love about Mountain View Elementary School is BASE, math, PDL, social studies, specials, the teachers, tech, and tests.    Could be better: What could be better is lunch and carpool.

I like lunch because we can eat. I like carpool because we get to go home. I like music because we get to sing.  

I love to go to BASE because I can play with Mrs. Brooklyn. I love math because I get to learn. I love PDL because I get to learn. I love social studies because I get to learn. I love specials because I get to do fun stuff. I love the teachers because they are nice. I love tech because I get to learn how to work a computer. I love tests because it makes a great challenge.

I think lunch could be better if we had a little bit more time to eat lunch. I think carpool could be better if everybody in the gym would be quiet.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

My favorite food to eat at lunch is bosco sticks. My favorite thing to do at music is to play drums. My favorite thing to do at carpool is to sit next to my friend Jaxson.

My favorite thing to do at BASE is to play Battle Ship. My favorite thing to do in math is to learn addition. My favorite thing to do in PDL is to research. My favorite thing to do in social studies is to do cool activities. My favorite thing to do at specials is to learn new things. My favorite thing about the teachers is that they help us learn. My favorite thing to do at tech is to learn how to work a computer. My favorite thing to do in tests is to do my best.

My 2nd favorite thing about lunch is that you get to finish it. My 2nd favorite thing about carpool is that I get to see my dad.

I Like Mountain View!
by Wyatt B. 2nd Grade

I like Mountain View because it is the best school ever! This school is very special to me because I have been there for four years, since preschool.  Math is my favorite subject.  I like doing math during calendar time while using white boards, markers, and erasers.  I like using Chrome Books for Spelling City.  I like lunch and recess because I like hanging together with my friends.  I like P.E. because we play fun games. Lastly, Mountain View is awesome!

                                               My Day At Mountain View


                                              By: Jaxon H.

First, we do Super Skills. Super Skills are another form of doing math. We all do 2 pages and then we do jam and minutes. Jam and minutes are activities where 2nd graders go to different classes and lead in exercises.Then we go to specials. We have Art, P.E, World cultures and Music. Once we're done with specials, we go back to the classroom. In class, we start with writing and then we get to go to lunch. After lunch we go to recess, my favorite part of my day. After recess it's back to the classroom. In class we do literacy centers. Literacy centers are where kids are separated into groups and the centers are "read to self", "teacher table", "writing", "words their way" and "computers".  After literacy centers, we go out to 2nd recess. After 2nd recess we come in and do math. Once we finish math, we do PDL. PDL is where some kids go to different classrooms and others stay in our classroom and use computers. Then we pack up for the day and get ready to go home. That's my day at Mountain View.

My Wonderful School

By Eliana J.

Once upon a time there was a school and this was no ordinary school  it was a school with Unicorns! The unicorns princess her name was princess Penelope. All the unicorns loved her and treated her like their master. One day when Penelope was feeding the unicorns a meteorite  hit the school. Now they lived near the Equator, so it was normal for the meteorite to hit because it was the closest place to outer space. “Ya, Ya!!”, said Penelope. Everyone was safe soon and they all built a new school. It was glorious and they named it Mountain View Elementary. At MVE, there was even a stall for all the unicorns!!   Later, they moved the Mountain View Elementary to Australia, so they would not have anymore meteorites. Two days later Penelope became queen, they had a ceremony and had a great day. Sadly, four years later she passed away in a war in 1822. Two weeks later they got a new queen her name was Queen Isabella. The unicorns got used to her and had a great time.She made great laws like eat cotton candy whenever you want! Now... HOW COOL IS THAT!!! Their school was very fun, so were the teachers. Everything was great until… WAR AGAIN! This war started in 1824. Good thing they won. And guess what? They found the same man who shot Queen Penelope! He was put to… DEATH! There was no more war! Yippee! Said everyone they had a great time they sang,they danced, they even had cake! They were glad they had won war and deep in their hearts they could hear Penelope saying, “Good job, you did great!” Even now you can see the unicorns dancing happily ever after at Mountain View Elementary.

My Dad's Visit to Mountain View
by Mason G.
2nd Grade

On Wednesday, March 28th, my Dad came to Mountain View Elementary School to talk to my class about safety.  He got to meet with the students of Ms. Smith and Ms. Krause in the gym, along with their reading buddies.  My dad is a police officer in Parker.  He talked to us about what police officers do in our community, and how they keep everyone safe.  We were all very good listeners and asked questions on how police officers help people.  My dad gave everyone an oath promising to be good listeners and friends.  After that, we all got official Parker Police badges.
