Calling All Grandparents and Special Friends
The Cooper School was honored to have grandparents and special friends join us at school for Grandparents and Special Friends Day, this Friday! Our proud singers shared specially selected songs during a lovely whole school choir performance. Grandparents and special friends were then invited to join classes for a Morning Meeting just as students participate in, daily. Grandparents and
Special Friends were elated to participate in greetings and activities that kindergarteners enjoy each day. Kindergarteners showed off their math skills as they taught Grandparents and Special Friends how to play “Top It”. Ask your Kindergartener, Grandparents or Special Friends to tell you all about their big day!
Readers Discover Story Elements!
This week Kindergarten readers investigated story elements to understand and analyze fiction books. Readers discussed elements including: character, setting, and plot. Kindergarten readers know to ask, “Who is this story mostly about?” to find the main character in a story. When thinking about the setting, they know to ask, “When and where did this take place?” Brave readers practiced identifying the conflict or problem in fiction stories to discuss the plot.
Pass it On
The Cooper School had a lovely time at our annual event, Pass it On. Brave poets put on their fancy clothes, gathered their gumption and shared their beautiful poems to a large and loving audience. Students were thrilled to hear their friends and siblings share their hard work. I am so proud of all of the hard work that Kindergarten poets put into their poetry writing!
