Building experts have been busy drafting their buildings for their building project. Kindergarteners have learned the difference between exterior and interior design. They used this information to draw detailed designs on special drafting paper. Your Kindergartener will then take these designs, add black pen tracing, and color them in. It has been an exciting process.
This week Kindergarteners built upon their relationships with Third Graders and Fourth Graders. On Monday, Third Graders came to visit to read an assortment of holiday books. Kindergarteners were delighted to listen to classics and new favorite tales. On Wednesday, Fourth Graders came to read different tales of the Gingerbread Man. Kindergarten and Fourth Grade buddies created their own gingerbread characters and wrote stories about them. Buddies then were able to create an illustration of their characters and color them in. Kindergarteners ate lunch and played with their buddy afterwards. What a delight it was to spend time with our older friends!
Students at The Cooper School participated in Whole School Morning Meetings this week to learn about how different winter holidays came to be, and specifically how light is important to each one! Scholars were delighted to make new discoveries about holidays celebrated around the world, as well as make connections amongst the variety of celebrations. Students learned how light is a valued component across holidays. Ask your scholar which holiday they enjoyed learning about the most!
