Holiday Season

It’s hard to believe that we are already here in the December holiday season! I want to thank all of you for coming to the parent/teacher conferences. I really enjoyed being able to spend some time with each of you and learning more about your children.

As we enter this holiday season, the children have been enjoying reading different versions of the Gingerbread Man.

We have read:

The Gingerbread Man by Karen Schmidt

The Gingerbread Man by Jim Aylesworth

The Gingerbread Girl by Lisa Ernst

The Gingerbread Cowboy by Janet Squires

The Gingerbread Baby and Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett

Be sure to check out Jan Bret's website for some great activities to go along with The Gingerbread Baby.

There is also an interactive Gingerbread Game on starfall.com

We will finish up our Gingerbread activities early this week and start our unit on holidays around the world. This week we will learn about Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.
