The last week before break!  KA was very busy:

Monday: Gingerbread Man Hunt

Making the gingerbread man!  We helped add the ingredients while talking about measuring. We also tried some of the ingredients and talked about bitter, salty, sweet, and our other senses.  Then KA stirred it and helped form the gingerbread man!


Oh, no!  He escaped from the oven!  We need to run after the gingerbread man!

Some of the places there were clues.



Nurse’s Office

We caught him!  A sweet treat awaited us in the classroom.


Tuesday: Making presents for our parents and Gateside staff & picture taking

Wednesday: Winter Concert & Class Party

Before the concert and during~

After the concert- Making edible trees with our family!




Thursday: Reading Buddies & Library & we wore PJs and had hot chocolate!  Thanks STUCO!

Friday: 1/2 day & SIS all school 30th Anniversary picture!  

December has been a busy time in KA!  We’ve had so much fun!  There have been many visitors and lots of activities!  We have used a lot of glitter!!!!!!! Yeah!

Elf on the Shelf~ He has been coming every day this month!  Sometimes we find him in funny places!  He always leaves us something do!  We also listened to the story of the Elf on the Shelf!  This has started our rhyming….

Gingerbread Man~ We began by reading three versions to find what is similar and different in them.  We even created a class chart.  Then KA started making gingerbread men.
