Strutting Our Stuff

Biome Fashion Show
This week, Kindergarteners wrapped up their largest project of this school year. Our presentation gave students the opportunity to show off all that they knew about biomes and clothing. Students were divided into different biome groups, challenged to study and learn about the flora and fauna, and then left to put together clothes that would be appropriate for the conditions. Kindergarteners showed off all of their hard work at our Biome Fashion Show, with the clothing they’ve designed, murals they’ve painted, and outfits they picked out. We loved getting to see Kindergarteners strut their stuff while loved ones cheered them on!

Cooper Village
This week, Kindergarteners got the opportunity to scope out Second Grades’ Cooper Village project. Second Graders have been working hard to build a town of their own, considering the careers and contributions of each of its members that allow it to function. Older students pieced together the entire Cooper Village, complete with a school, hospital, grocery store, as well as many other essential businesses. Kindergartners were excited and inspired to see the work of their peers and siblings as they are beginning constructing biome buildings of their own!

Our Timeline of Learning
Kindergarteners spent the week investigating the many ways they have grown since the beginning of the school year. Students were blown away when we pulled out their writing samples from our very first writing unit. Kindergarten writers spent time comparing their most recent piece of writing to the writing they did at the very beginning of the year and noticed all of the ways they have grown. They can’t wait to share their proud observations with you during their student led conferences next week!
