We read 5 different gingerbread stories this week. The kids were so interested and would ask what story we would be reading that afternoon. We made a chart to help us keep track of some story elements from each story. We did some different activities throughout the week, and ended on Friday by making gingerbread people out of paper. The kids loved how big they turned out!
We have been working with 2 dimensional shapes in Math. This week, we spent a lot of time creating bigger shapes from smaller shapes. We used pattern blocks to create hexagons and used tangrams to create different shapes. It took a lot of problem solving to move the shapes around and re-position them. I am so proud of this class!
I am working on assessments for grade cards. The kids are doing fabulous! 10 more kids counted to 100 by ones independently today! Thank you for all the support and work you are doing with your child - it is showing in our classroom!
Next week, we are going to learn about how people celebrate Christmas around the world. We will not have Reading Bags as homework again until January due to the program and the holidays.
Have a great weekend!
