We enjoyed gingerbread stories all last week and we have one final one on Monday, “The Gingerbread Girl.” I hope the children have been telling you about these books when they come home from school. Also, this past Friday, we had a blast building our gingerbread houses. The children did a marvelous job working together, sharing materials, and listening to directions to build a great house. I hope you enjoyed the houses when the came home! The children were so proud of themselves after they were finished. I was also proud of how hard they worked. Thank you to everyone who sent in materials to help with the gingerbread houses to make it a success. We also have one last “surprise” project on Monday for the children to work on as my gift to them.
On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we will be taking a trip on the “Polar Express.” We will be talking about trains, shapes, counting, and sequencing. The children will also be writing about where they would go on a train. We will be reading the book and then watch the movie. In addition, the children can wear their pajamas to school on Wednesday as part of our unit. I think the children are going to enjoy this week at school.
