Haiku, Math, and Community Helpers! March 24, 2018

Can You Haiku?

This week brave readers and writers explored haiku poetry through the reading and writing of these 3 lined expressions. Kindergarteners have been busy composing haikus about nature. They know these special poems are usually said in one breath and have a line to tell when, where and what the haiku is about. Kindergarteners were very excited to learn more about poetry! Ask your young poet what they learned about haikus this week!  

Kindergarten Mathematicians

Kindergarten Mathematicians have been busy exploring 2-D and 3-D structures during math this week. Students were thrilled to show all they know about 2-D and 3-D shapes as they used marshmallows and toothpicks to build examples of each. Kindergarteners were excited to discover how they could combine 2-D shapes to create new shapes and objects. Brave Mathematicians worked to combine 3-D shapes to create 3-D objects like houses, cubes, and triangular prisms.

Kindergarteners Help Choose a Charity

Cooper School students collaborated during Whole School Morning Meeting this week to write this year’s tribute poem for Pass It On. Students voted and are thrilled to be supporting a charity called I Heart Hungry Kids. This charity provides bagged food for children in need. Bravo community helpers!
