Third Graders were so excited to celebrate Halloween at The Cooper School this week! Fifth Graders organized and ran an amazing Halloween Carnival where our entire school enjoyed many carnival games as well as a spooky haunted house. We loved seeing all of our students’ creativity in their costumes and were so thankful to spend the holiday with you all.
This week, Third Graders continued working on their Community Change Makers projects. Students have expanded on their work by searching for inspirational quotes which support their activist’s missions, as well as creating timelines of major events in their lives. Students are loving being able to use both books and supervised iPad research to include in their findings.
Third Graders have been reading nonfiction texts, and using their findings to teach their peers. This week, we partnered up to share the interesting information they had read on their on topic. Students outlined their main idea and collected notes to support their points. Third Graders were so excited to share everything they had learned with a friend!
