Spontaneous Third Graders !!

Spring Choir Concert    

On Wednesday the Cooper School community gathered at the Scottish Rite to perform a musical selection of well known songs for parents and families. It was a beautiful concert and we are grateful to Mr. Alton for all his hard work in choir this year. First through fourth grades worked very hard and sounded amazing. We thank you all for coming to see the show!   

Reading  

This week, students have been reading different fairy tales in their reading groups to find similarities between them and to identify characteristics that most fairy tales share. Students have also been enjoying hearing different adaptations of fairy tales that we’re familiar with such as The Penguin and the Pea by Janet Perlman. We also are enjoying our fairy tale read aloud so much: The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy-Tale Detectives by Michael Buckley.

Writing   

Our Third Grade writers have been working diligently to write their own fairy tale adaptations. Students were able to choose any fairy tale that they wanted and create their own adaptation of it. Currently, we’re working on typing up our first drafts of our fairy tales, but we’re looking forward to presenting our adaptations to the class soon!
