Pumpkin Presentations & Published Books

Pumpkin Presentation
Our classroom was filled with excitement and pride as Kindergarten wrapped up their fun-filled pumpkin unit. Students invited family and friends to our backyard to check out our labeled pumpkin models, pumpkin artwork, pumpkin fact books, as well as the decomposing pumpkin we have been observing. Students capped off the celebration by sharing their pumpkin facts and performing their very informative and exciting Pumpkin Play for a full audience. Kindergarteners were prepared, energetic, and brave. We are so proud of our little pumpkins!

Every November, Cooper School students and staff begin their discussion of Gratitude.  This unit culminates with the final copy of Gratitude Books prepared with love, for families and friends.  These books are a labor of love that the students put a lot of thought into before their final copy is created.  The outer covers of these books are painted by the Kindergarten class using gorgeous homemade natural dyes. Inside the books, are the six things that the students are most grateful for in their lives. We hope that you enjoy these treasures that your Kindergarteners have worked so hard to prepare for you!

Buzz About Buildings
Kindergarteners were so excited to kick off their study of Buildings this week. Our classroom was abuzz with students so excited to share what they knew as we started the week by talking about all of the different types of buildings they knew, all of the things that buildings have, and what it takes to build! Kindergarteners dove head first into the study by designing buildings of their own. Students decided the purpose of their own buildings, the materials it would be made of, and how it helped the community it was built to serve.
