Becoming Leaders & Team Players
Fourth Grade students didn’t skip a beat when it came to seeing old friends and meeting new faces. They were natural leaders as they remembered to line up in a speedy fashion and focus on the teacher when the chime was rung. To start the year off, the Cooper kids jumped right into writing down their comments for our Wonder Wall! They will soon have a chance to tackle their Hopes and Dreams project for their Fourth Grade year. One of the highlights of the first day was watching them engage in a thrilling game of Freeze Tag on the playground!
This week was all about getting to know the classroom, routines, and their friends! In order to have a great year, it’s important to slow things down and review the expectations for Fourth Grade. Scholars modeled and practiced routines of the new classroom and grade level. This included how to navigate through the school, where things are and how to get them, and acceptable volume levels. Students practiced these routines through completing a Math Cart Hunt with their math partner! Fourth Graders made the transition into their new classroom with joy and confidence, ready to start a great year!
Fourth Graders were ecstatic to meet their new class pet, OJ! He is an orange leopard gecko who snuggles next to his heating pad while watching the students work. Thank you to the families that have already signed up to purchase mealworms and additional accessories for the habitat. He is sure to be a favorite!
