Gingerbread Man Family Activity

On Thursday night (before the ice hit), we had our Gingerbread Man Family Activity. We had a lot of fun and the families that came listened to the story of the Gingerbread Man, decorated ornaments together, socialized, and ate yummy treats. I hope that your ornaments stay safe and don't get eaten by any sneaky foxes! Have a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable winter break!

You can't catch me!

Last week (sorry for the late post!) we participated in a smelling activity. We also got to do some tasting! We each had a list of the ingredients used to make Gingerbread Men. Miss Stephanie passed around the ingredients one by one and we checked in a box if we could smell it or not. We also got to taste most of them. Some of the ingredients had a smell, but not much of a taste, like flour. Some had a really good smell but not a very good taste, like cinnamon. Miss Stephanie forgot her camera when the Monday/Wednesday/Friday class did it, so there are some pictures of them participating in other activities!

Gingerbread Man

Sorry this blog post didn't happen over the weekend. Miss Stephanie said it was Monday morning before she knew it!

Here are several videos from our Gingerbread Man fun last week. Our pretend play area turned into a bakery and we spent a lot of time mixing, rolling, and cooking gingerbread men! We also made gingerbread men in the discovery zone. You will also see that Mr. Rich visited us in the morning class and we all were very interested in what an audiologist does! This is a long slideshow because we had a lot of fun telling Miss Stephanie on video what we were doing!

P.S. Don't forget to tell Miss Stephanie if you are coming to the family activity night on Thursday, December 18!
