On Wednesday we read The Gingerbread Man Loose at School followed by baking and decorating our own gingerbread people. We left them to cool while we went outside to play and when we came back inside we discovered they had ran away! Luckily they left clues for us to follow and we found them across the street at Jackson's Corner! We enjoyed those sneaky treats with a warm cup of hot chocolate!
We played some fun gingerbread math games that helped us work on 1:1 correspondence and number recognition. Friends played gingerbread bakery in the dramatic play kitchen, decorated foam gingerbread ornaments at the art table, dressed a giant gingerbread, wrote letters in salt trays at the light table, decorated gingerbread house mats with play dough candies and practiced spelling out their names in gingerbread letters. We also were busy practicing our songs and poems for our Christmas Show next week! We love this magical time of year!
