Counting on the Smartboard

We practiced some counting on the Smartboard today! We counted, filled in numbers, talked about the number that comes "after", "before", and "between"!

Just Dance!

With the yucky winter weather, we aren't able to go outside and run around like we would like to! Instead, our favorite activity is DANCING! We pull up Wii Just Dance videos on YouTube and dance along! This is an activity you could do at home too on those days you are cooped up inside! It is a great activity for the whole family. Even if you don't have a Wii, you can watch the videos on any computer or tablet and just get dancing!

Here are some of our favorites:

Run! Run! As Fast As You Can!

We enjoyed our last day before winter break by baking!

We made gingerbread men in our classroom!

We followed a recipe to mix up the dough to make sugar cookies. Then we rolled and cut them out and then popped them in the oven!


When we went to the oven to take them out, they were gone! They had run away!

We had to run around the school and see if we could find them. Miss Bonnie told us she saw them running down the hall and when we got back to our classroom, there they were!

The T/TH kids had to leave to go home and got to bring their new gingerbread friends home. In the afternoon, everyone else decorated them! They were yummy!

Here is a cute YouTube video of the Gingerbread Man story/song to watch at home!  

Here are children at a school for the Deaf acting out the story!

Gingerbread Night 2013

We had a great Gingerbread House Family Night this week. We got our own graham crackers, milk carton (for the house) and candy to decorate the house anyway we wanted! We were very creative and we had fun seeing our friends and working together with our families!

Here are some pictures from our night:

The other day we talked about why the Gingerbread Man doesn't want to cross the river by himself. We wondered what would happen if he went in the water. We had a few guesses, and then we tried it out ourselves. We each took a cookie and put it in the water and talked about what happened!

See what we had to say:
