The Cooper School Daily

Our First Full Week!

Creating Our Kindergarten House Rules
Kindergarteners started their week off by reviewing and then putting our classroom rules onto paper. Students discussed the importance of ONE voice in our classroom, taking care of our materials and each other, as well as using kind words and gentle hands. Kindergarten spent the week practicing their mastery of our classroom rules and applying them in every aspect of their day!

All About Me
Students were so excited to kick off our new Social Studies unit this week, All About Me! Kindergarteners spent the week talking about their inside qualities, outside qualities, and the things that make them special. We can’t wait to continue to learn all about each friend’s family and celebrate the differences in our classroom and world. Students are so excited for the opportunity to start their Walk In My Shoes project.

Exploring Our Math Tools
Students have been so excited to explore and discover new things about our classroom each day. This week, Kindergarteners began our math unit with some exploration of some of our most used math tools! Students got to experiment with pattern blocks, stack and build with connecting cubes, and tool around with 5-frames and counters. Students had so much fun solving pattern block puzzles!
