"You Can't Catch Me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!"

The kindergartners did a great job on their at-home project of decorating gingerbread men. If you have not yet returned your decorated gingerbread man, please return to school so it can be displayed. I hope you had fun with this project!

Please send in frosting, sprinkles, red hots, raisins, licorice twists, etc. to decorate our gingerbread boys (or girls) with. Please remember no nuts.

Rosie's Walk

This is a wonderful story that our field practicum student, Ms. Faber, read the students last week. It's a great story for learning word about directionality.

Scary Faces

Today we read "The Little Scarecrow Boy" by Margaret Wise Brown, and in the story the little scarecrow boy practices making fierce faces to scare away crows. After the story, we practiced our fiercest faces.

If I Had Been a Pilgrim ...

Last week we read a non-fiction story about pilgrims, and learned about their lives in America. Then we did an art project with our 3rd grade buddies, and wrote about what we would have done if we were pilgrims. Some of the students said they would build their own houses, make their own bread, and hunt for their own food.
