Gingerbread Week

We had a very busy week doing many different gingerbread man activities. During reading time we read 3 different Gingerbread Man books and compared the books. We made a Venn Diagram to compare 2 of the books. Students made their own gingerbread houses using a paper bag!

We ended the week with a hunt! The gingerbread man jumped out of the book and was running around the school so we had to catch him! He left us a special treat in our classroom! Cookies!

What a fun filled week! Students are doing a wonderful job at understanding how to use a Venn Diagram!

Run run as fast as you can! You can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man!

A Snowy Day

At the end we caught snowflakes with our tongues!

We had so much fun running around and catching snowflakes.

Jazzmyne caught lots of snowflakes.

We had our first snow at school and we just HAD to go out! It was so fun to catch the snowflakes on the black felt and look at them. We noticed that each snowflake is different.

Jonah and his family!

Caleb and his family!

During our program we shared many things with parents. We did our shape poems.

The parent's favorite seemed to be the Tooty Ta! Hilarious!
We performed our Thanksgiving play!

And sang the turkey song! Overall it was a very fun and exciting night! We had over 65 people in our classroom and it was so nice to meet other families at Parkview and see everyone's friends! Thanks for coming and great job Miss Workman's class!

Dr. Keating

Alan is listening to another classmates heart beat!
Craig is pretending to be the Dr. while Kaylee is the patient.

Jonah is taking a break from playing pretend Dr.

Sophie is practicing washing her hands and making the red dot disappear. Dr. Keating shared with us that we should sing the ABC's one time while scrubbing our hands.
Dr. Keating tapped our knees to check our reflexes!

Yesterday was a very fun day as Dr. Keating came and talked with us about how to keep our bodies healthy and what doctors do. Alyssa had a fun time trying on the stethoscope.

Way to Go Caleb!

Great job Caleb on reading all of your popcorn words!
