We were very excited to introduce Kindergarteners to an old Cooper School tradition, One Word for the New Year! In a class discussion, students considered the aspects of their life they’d like to improve this year. After careful consideration, students chose one word they really wanted to focus on this year. We have so many new goals set in our classroom this year, including ‘listen’, ‘mindful’, ‘brave’, and ‘inventive’! It’s so exciting to see young minds building on their vocabulary and applying it to their own lives!
Students have been busy in our classroom learning so many new terms to compare the weights of different objects! Students compared different items in our classroom and predicted which would be heavier. Using a balance, Kindergarteners were excited to put their predictions to the test. It was so exciting to solve the mystery of which items were “heavier”, “lighter”, and “equal”! Our class is full of mathematicians ready to show off their knowledge to the world!
Kindergarteners were thrilled for the chance to express their appreciation for the strong relationships they have built with their peers! Students kicked off a new project writing compliments for their classmates. Our class began by brainstorming the things they appreciated about their peers. From there, students looked for ways to put their feelings into words. Kindergarteners were bustling with so many positive things to say! We are touched to see and hear all of the kind things students had to say to their peers.
