There is a bittersweet feeling to finishing a good book. Fourth Graders experienced that this week as they finished reading the BFG by Roald Dahl. The book’s unique characters, along with its magical twist set in the real world, appeal to readers of all ages. Fourth Graders loved being able to watch the characters come to life in the BFG movie! Students loved watching the movie and noticing the similarities and differences between the book and movie.
Wrapping Up the Year
It is hard to believe that the year is coming to the end. With everything going on, the students took some time out of their hectic schedule to think about everything they have accomplished, experienced, and learned this year. This week in Morning Meeting, students reflected on their hopes, dreams, and their Fourth Grade year. Scholars talked about all the growth that occurred through achievements and challenges. They shared some of their proudest moments and their accomplishments. Each student chose one or two words that they thought summed up their year. Then looking ahead, they shared the things they looked forward to in Fifth Grade.
This was a wonderful week to celebrate Fifth Grade friends at The Cooper School. On Tuesday, Fourth Graders enjoyed supporting Fifth Graders as they practiced their graduation performances for the entire school. The Fifth Graders are so talented! They performed vocal solos, played instruments, read beautiful poetry, and more. On Thursday, Cooper School friends were thrilled to participate in The Cooper School’s graduation party, complete with a victory arch for the graduates, strawberry shortcake for everyone, a photo booth, and compliment chains for the graduates. It was such a splendid way to celebrate our friends in Fifth Grade.
