The Luck of the Kindergarteners

How To Catch a Leprechaun
Our week was filled with St. Patrick’s Day excitement! On Wednesday, students entered our classroom to find that we must have had a visitor. A leprechaun found his way into our classroom, left a mess of glitter, and wrote a poem for us! Kindergarteners spent the day learning all about St. Patrick’s Day traditions and celebrations and brainstorming ways to catch that sneaky leprechaun! We didn’t catch the leprechaun this year, but we will try again next year!

Tapping Into Sound Town
This week, Kinder-Poets tapped into their five senses with a focus on hearing and listening. Students spent time listening to the sounds around us and finding ways to put those sounds on paper. We loved getting the chance to slow down our world for a moment to listen to the children having fun in the backyard, cars racing by, feet walking through gravel, and birds chirping. Kindergarteners are experts with creatively recording special sound words called onomatopoeia. We are discovering these sounds in so many unusual places!

New View! New Seats!
Can you believe that we have entered our third trimester of school? Cooper School tradition is to get new seats in the classroom each trimester to gain a new perspective in their learning. Students were thrilled to enter the classroom and hunt for their new seats. Kindergarteners couldn’t wait to start adventures with new table partners!
