The Cooper School Daily

A Week of Wonder

Morning Meeting
Daily Morning Meetings bring our Kindergarten class so much joy! This special part of our day helps to build community and a sense of belonging in our classroom. Each day we begin by greeting each other in safe and engaging ways, reading and discussing our morning message, sharing thoughts and ideas, and then we move our bodies with an energizing activity. Students are able to fulfill the need to belong, to feel significant, and to have fun! Each day your child is being taught the skills of friendliness and social interest through sharing, listening, inclusion, participation, and speaking in front of a group. Ask your Kindergartener to share their favorite part of Morning Meeting with you!

Writing to Show & Tell
Kindergarten writers are off to an eager start in our new Show & Tell writing unit! Showing & Telling is something that they already know how to do well. When we apply the idea of showing and telling to our writing workshop, it helps guide our growing writers to draw and write A LOT on each page! Kindergarteners are learning that as they grow, their writing needs to grow too! Ask your Kindergartener what they wrote about this week during our Show & Tell writing time.
