Gingerbread Man Recipe

Since we are reading about gingerbread men this week, and having a treat on Thursday, I thought I'd share a favorite recipe. The kids really love it, because it uses butterscotch pudding instead of molasses. Yum! Gingerbread Men Recipe

Santa's Workshop

On December 8th, our class will shop in "Santa's Workshop." A shopping list will be sent home with your child today. If you choose to participate, please return the shopping list and money (each gift is $1.50) by December 8th. The kids really love picking out their own gifts for their family and friends! This is a fun event provided by PTA.

Gobble, gobble!

We enjoyed making turkey hats in Ms. Miller's room, then wearing them to our yummy Friendship Feast! Thanks to all of the parents who contributed items for our feast. The kids really enjoyed it, and their time together. A big thanks to the parents who came to help out during the feast!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I apologize - I just noticed an error I made on the snack calendar for this month. Next week, there is full-day school on Monday, November 22nd and a half day (out at noon) on Tuesday, November 23rd. There is no school November 24-26th. School will resume on the 29th. Sorry for the confusion!

We Like Pumpkin Pie!

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we have been talking a lot about pumpkin pie! Our Poem of the Week is even a song about pumpkin pie. On Friday, I brought in some pumpkin pie and whipped cream and we all ate some, then graphed who liked it and who didn't. Lots of kindergartners LOVED the pie! We also painted pieces of "pie" and added cotton ball whipped cream. The kids really enjoyed this project.

We are thankful for ...

We practiced writing the word and and added it to a poster with all of the kindergartners' pictures to show who we are thankful for this holiday season. This is a favorite poster for students to read during our Read the Room center!

We will be making Taco Soup in class. Each child will bring an item to school to help make our Taco Soup, or an item for our feast. Please check your child's red folder next Wednesday to find out what item you need to bring. Please bring the item by Monday, November 22nd. If you are unable to bring your item, please let me know. Thank you!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Thank you to everyone who attended Parent Teacher Conferences this week. It was wonderful visiting with you all about your awesome kids! Please let me know if you ever have questions or concerns about anything that is happening in our classroom, or if you'd like to help in our room anytime.

Have a great weekend!

Girl Scouts

Two of our kindergarten parents, Benette Johnson and Sarah Strauser, are leading Girl Scout Troops in our area. These two troops are Daisy troops and are open to Kindergartners and first graders. This does not mean a girl from another school or area cannot be involved in these troops. Benette's troop, Troop #2144, will be meeting on Monday for a parent meeting from 6pm to 7pm. Please call her if you are interested in Girls Scouts or know someone who is and have not been contacted by one of the new troop leaders yet. We may not have the correct contact information. Benette's number is #690-6388. Thank you!
