November 27-December 1


Mmmm.... our Kindergarten classroom smelled wonderful all week. We started our week with gingerbread. We read several different stories about a gingerbread man. We compared and contrasted each of the stories with the original story. We also created a gingerbread class book, completed a gingerbread science experiment, and did some graphing and patterning activities. Gingerbread week wouldn’t be complete without trying different kinds of gingerbread including Gingerbread cookies and cake. Finally, we made gingerbread ornaments out of applesauce and cinnamon. They made our room smell really good. After letting them dry for a couple of days, we decorated them with some glue and glitter. We also started our preparation for Advent and Christmas by making a countdown chain.
