Cooling Down in Kindergarten

Jenny Linsky!
Our class has been delighted by our daily read-alouds of Jenny Linsky! Kindergarteners have grown quite fond of Esther Averill’s tales of this darling little black cat from New York City. During this special time of our day, students listen and play a movie in their mind. They have even started to illustrate scenes from our read-aloud during our daily quiet time! We all loved the first book, “Jenny and the Cat Club” so much that we decided to read her next book, “School For Cats”. In these precious books students have grown to love the main character, Jenny Linsky, as she is adopted, finds a loving owner, Captain Tinker, and even discovers her very own hidden talent, ice skating! Ask your Kindergartener to tell you what they love about our newest class read-aloud, “The Hotel Cat”.

Shapes, Shapes Everywhere!
Kindergarteners have had so much fun this week studying all of the shapes around us! Students have been so proud to share all that they know about triangles, rectangles, squares, circles, and even hexagons! Our little friends have been especially excited to use their shape knowledge in our upcoming Buildings unit. Our Kindergarteners’ counting skills have sure come in handy as we determine how many sides and points each shape is made up of!

Outdoor Yoga
This week, Kindergarten yogis were thrilled to join Ms. Courtney in The Cooper School’s outdoor classroom just as the weather warmed up a bit! Kindergarteners enjoyed connecting their minds and bodies as they moved through a thoughtful sequence of vowel poses. Kindergarteners did a beautiful job listening to Ms.Courtney as she guided them on a magical yoga journey as they enjoyed feeling the sunshine on their little faces. Ask your Kindergartener what they enjoyed the most about yoga with Ms. Courtney in our outdoor classroom!
