Dec. 7, 2018 Newsletter
It was a gingerbread kind of week! I told the flannel board story of “The Gingerbread Man,” and the children loved reciting what he repeatedly said, “Run, run as fast as you can. You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man.” We heard other stories with the same theme. The children did a great job with the sequence activity of the disappearing Gingerbread Man. Of course it helped to eat the cookie while doing the project!! Yum! We played with Gingerbread play dough and cookie cutters. We decorated a paper gingerbread house complete with a family. Did your child put the family in order from smallest to largest?
We focused on the number 9 this past week. The class had some cutting practice as they cut out 9 road signs for their counting book. In Investigator Club, we counted and counted and counted some more—— making sure to touch each picture while counting!
Happy Birthday to Miss Effie Collins who turned 4 on Monday along with her twin sister in Mrs. West class.
We will continue next week with holiday activities and crafts and let’s not forget the number 10. We are also working on special gifts for mom and dad.
Have a nice week ahead, stay warm and dry.
