We are celebrating reading this week in honor of Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day! Students participated in a book tasting event to sample new books to Coopertown's library.The goal of the book tasting was to get students excited about reading and try some books or genres they may not have selected on their own. Students filled out book tasting menus and reflection napkins.
Coopertown Elementary School donated one large box and two medium containers of soda can tabs to the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware (1901 Rockland Road Wilmingotn DE). They receive money for the recycled tabs which helps to provide a "home away from home" for the families with seriously ill or injured children they serve
2nd grade will take you on a journey around the world to learn the meaning of flags.
First grade is starting a two week author study on Jan Brett. Some of the stories we will be reading are The Mitten, The Hat, Annie and the Wild Animals and Gingerbread Baby. We will also be comparing and contrasting other mitten and gingerbread stories. Children will sequence the stories with puppets, identify story elements, discuss character traits, determine author's purpose, and make connections to the stories. Please refer back regularly as pictures are added to our gallery.
Sit back relax and enjoy our December Student Announcements!

Coopertownís Third Grade visited Bartram's Garden. John Bartram was the first botanist (plant scientist), in America. His home was built in the 1700s. He was good friends with Benjamin Franklin.
Students had an amazing field day. The sun was shining and they were ready to go. The olympic theme was carried through out the entire morning. Sportsmanship and fair play was a key to making the event a success. Special thanks goes out to our own HHS students who ran the different events for the students. Also to Mr. Hauer our gym teacher for organizing the festivities.
Kindergarten has been studying seasons . As an extension of the Fall theme , we read about how pumpkins grow. We cut ours open and explored the inside. We wrote down describing words of the "pumpkin guts". We then counted the seeds by putting 10 in each cup and grouping the cups by 100s. There were more than 500 seeds in each of the pumpkins !
After observing fall changes in their surroundings, students in Mrs. Elcock's class donned safety glasses and gloves to work as scientists, investigating the question, "Why do leaves change colors?" They crushed and soaked green leaves in jars. Next, they placed coffee filters in the jars to absorb the liquid, revealing bands of fall colors. Students concluded, "The colors didn't change-they were always there!" Additional pictures attached
Veterans Day is an American national holiday dedicated to honor all those who have served in the military for the United States. Veterans are people who served in the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard. In 1918, World War I was officially declared over on the 11th day of the 11th month at 11:00 a.m. A year later, President Woodrow Wilson named November 11th Armistice Day as it described a formal agreement or truce. In 1938, Congress declared the day a national holiday. In 1954, President Eisenhower officially changed the name of the holiday to Veterans Day. The national holiday is dedicated to paying tribute to all American veterans who honorably served the United States during war or peacetime. Please click on title to read Dr. Kane's letter
