The Cooper School Daily

It’s the Holiday Season…

Voracious Readers

Reading Workshop is one of our favorite times of the day. There is something undeniably special about reading books. First Grade is an exciting year of tremendous growth in Reading and these young scholars are just devouring books! It is a joy for us to be able to celebrate in their triumphs and share this journey with them as they grow as readers. What are your earliest memories around reading? We invite you to share them with your scholar!

Getting Festive!

In the spirit of the winter season, on the last day of school before the break, students and teachers donned pajamas and came together for an all school read aloud and candy cane hunt.  Students have enjoyed creating festive winter crafts and reading holiday books during the week leading up to break!

Holidays Around the World

Students at The Cooper School participated in Whole School Morning Meetings this week to learn about different winter holidays across cultures, such as Christmas, Hanukkah, Las Posadas, St. Lucia Day, and Winter Solstice. They specifically learned how food is important to each one of these winter holidays! Scholars were delighted to make new discoveries about holidays celebrated around the world, as well as make connections amongst the variety of celebrations. Ask your scholar which holiday they enjoyed learning about the most!
