Moving On Up

Move Up Day!
Kindergarteners spent their Thursday morning this week exploring the First Grade classroom and meeting the First Grade teachers! This is a favorite tradition at The Cooper School as it gives Kinderbuddies a glance into what to expect next year. Kindergarteners were excited to meet the First Grade class pet, a leopard gecko named Guppy! Students learned new math games and all about the 1st Grade way of life. We are so proud of our future First Graders!

Illustrating Compliments
This was a big week in our Kindergarten world! After working hard to craft thoughtful compliments for each of our classmates, Kindergarteners took on the big job of creating illustrations to match their words for each friend! Kindergarteners blew us away with their beautiful bucket-filling illustrations! We know that you will love reading these treasures!

Then vs. Now
This week, Kindergarteners spent time considering the areas in their life in which they have improved. We asked students to think about all of the things that they can do now that they were not able to do at the beginning of our school year independently. Kindergarteners gushed over their abilities to read, write, and count! Though we already knew and had seen this growth, it was so beautiful to hear little ones proudly acknowledge their own accomplishments! As we look forward, we will set academic goals for things that Kindergarteners want to accomplish and master independently before they are First Graders!
