We continue to have lots of fun with our gingerbread theme. This week we had Mrs. Lindquist (Levi's mom) as well as Mr. and Mrs. Bergen (Aveena's parents) as our guest readers. Thank you for joining us!
The Gingerbread Bear
This week we filled the school with the glorious smell of gingerbread! We poured, mixed, kneaded, rolled and cut our very own cookies. To some disappointment they were not for eating but we are excited to fill our homes with this sweet smell as holiday decorations!
We have also been extending our learning about gingerbread stories through art projects. Here we are painting gingerbread boys and girls as well as creating our own houses for the gingerbread baby.
We are approaching the BIG gingerbread celebration! As students bring in items and ask about them I simply state they are for a "project"...since we engage in lots of crafty projects nobody has become suspicious :) Thank you for continuing to keep it a surprise! If you could send in items as early as possible (Monday or Tuesday) that would be great.
On Thursday please plan on arriving between 12:35-12:45 (our plan is to be back in the room at 12:45). Please use your best stealthy skills to get to our classroom! I will need help setting up the room as we will be off on the "gingerbread hunt". If you are available to help I will leave directions on my teacher table about party set-up (example: someone can put all the tablecloths on, putting gingerbread cookies on each table spot, etc.) If one or two parents want to take charge of this please email me and let me know. This way when students return from the hunt they will have found the real gingerbread man and be ready to celebrate with you all!
Following the celebration we will be cleaning up, packing up and making our way outside for our end of the day recess. If you plan on picking up your child from the celebration please inform the office prior.
Thank you for all your support, here we go!
