Can You Haiku?
This week brave readers and writers explored haiku poetry through the reading and writing of these 3 lined expressions. Kindergarteners have been busy composing haikus about nature. They know these special poems are usually said in one breath have a line to tell when, where and what the haiku is about. Kindergarteners were very excited to learn more about poetry! Ask your young poet what they learned about haikus this week!
Kindergarteners Help Choose a Charity
Cooper School students collaborated during whole school morning meetings this week to study this year’s tribute for Pass it On. Students voted and are thrilled to be supporting a charity called Surfrider Foundation. The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. Way to go Cooper School Students!
St. Patrick’s day
The Cooper School enjoyed a fun-filled celebration of St. Patrick’s Day this year. Students of all grade levels were greeted Thursday morning with a very green mess left behind by some visiting leprechauns. Kindergarten was specifically visited by Rory O’Malley. Those leprechauns are so mischievous! At the end of the day, the entire school gathered together to enjoy an Irish Folktale read aloud by Mr. Noah. A folktale is a story passed from generation to generation in a particular culture. Right when we were just about to finish the read aloud, we had another surprise! Leprechauns had visited us again, and this time they had left presents in the backyard. Students partnered up and searched for their Irish proverb and St. Patrick’s Day treat. Ask your child what surprised them most on St. Patrick’s Day!
