Happy Halloween!

Halloween Carnival
Kindergarteners were so excited to celebrate the spooky holiday this week by wearing costumes and gathering in our backyard for a Halloween Carnival organized by the Middle School students! We were so excited to celebrate with our whole school, checking out their costumes, and playing games alongside them. Kindergarteners had so much fun as they bounced around from game to game, greeting all of their older friends in school. Our day wrapped up with some exciting costume awards as Kindergarteners celebrated all of our school’s winners. Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin Patched
We finally got to go on our first field trip! Kindergarteners have been anxiously waiting for their opportunity to hop on The Cooper School bus and travel to West Farm Corn Maze to further explore our pumpkin study. Students had so much fun as we navigated our way through a corn maze, jumped aboard a hayride, had a picnic lunch, and then played in the farm themed play area. We were so proud of our Kindergarteners showing off to the farm staff all that they know about pumpkins!

Spooky Centers
This week, Kinder-Ghouls and Goblins were thrilled to participate in some spooky center time! Students strengthened their counting skills and practiced comparing numbers as they played spider math counting games. Little hands explored shapes as they solved spooky tangram puzzles with friends. Our imagination station center was filled to the brim with pumpkins and Kindergarteners enjoyed pretending to sell pumpkins in our classroom’s pumpkin patch. Ask your Kindergartener which spooky center they enjoyed the most!
