Happy Spring Break!

Published Poets
This week, Kindergarteners put the finishing touches on the poems that they will be publishing in The Cooper School’s Pass It On book. Over the past couple of weeks, Kindergarteners have been working hard writing so much poetry! From all of their hard work, Kindergarteners looked through and selected two poems that they were most proud of. We are so proud of all of the growth Kindergarteners have shown in writing this year!

Puppet Factory
In our classroom, we have explored all different kinds of puppets from marionettes to Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats! Using all that they have learned, students have begun creating some puppets of their own. From our stick puppets to paper bag puppets, students have worked on developing characterization! Students were excited to be given the freedom to create a paper bag puppet of their choosing;  human, animals, or other! We saw lots of cats, dogs, and even a couple of aliens. We look forward to using these puppets to enhance our storytelling!

Charlotte’s Web
Students have spent this week joining Wilbur and Charlotte down on the farm. These brave scholars have applied all that they know about setting and characters to discuss our newest Read Aloud, all about the unlikely friendship between a spider and a pig. We have loved getting to share this timeless classic with our Kinderbuddies. Students have been so excited about this book that we finished it in record time. We ended our week by celebrating the arrival of Spring Break by watching the Charlotte’s Web movie!
