Week 15 Letter Nn, sound /n/, star word 'like', and GINGERBREAD!

As you probably heard, our 11 year old Samoyed, Pippin, passed away last weekend.
Yes, I  have had some tears, but also laughs at remembering his craziness!
Click below for a fun link if you wish to see his crazy life...



Not much time for sadness THIS week...my FAVORITE week of the whole year....GINGERBREAD WEEK!!!!
We began with new morning challenges:
Gingerbread number/object match...


Gingerbread ABC order...



Gingerbread numeric order...


Our morning message even looked like gingerbread...mmmm!
Monday afternoon we created these HUGE GINGERBREAD PEOPLE!  We will be decorating the gym with them...

The Christmas Bake Shoppe is still a hot item at choice time...
Blocks and building are fun, too!
Mrs. Sauers works with us every afternoon... I usually give her fun, creative activities that require small groups to be successful!
Here are the completed snowpeople she worked on last week with the kiddos...adorable!


A NEW play area...the GINGERBREAD village!

Are ready for this?  On Tuesday we actually MADE gingerbread cookies right in our classroom!
MMMMM...the aroma was delightful!




All that's left is the dishes and waiting....
Here is a cute, new poem...
ask your child to read it to you!

They can also tell you 
"Where is the /n/ sound?"
Here is another team ready to mix and shape...
