All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth!

This week's poem was titled "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth". The class loved reading/signing this poem. On Friday, we performed the poem, as well as listened to other versions online! Below is our performance and a few other videos we watched and sang along.

Holiday Sing-Along

Our school had a "Holiday Sing-Along" this afternoon. For the past couple of weeks, each class/grade level has been practicing specific holiday songs. While each grade took their turn to sing, the other classes were encouraged to join in by reading the words on the screen. Below are four videos I took of the kindergarten students singing and dancing along!

Gingerbread Man Hunt!

Last week, we read several gingerbread stories. We read a couple stories titled The Gingerbread Man, The Gingerbread Girl, Gingerbread Pirates, The Gingerbread Mouse, The Gingerbread Baby and a few more! On Friday (which was also pajama day) we decorated and cooked our very own classroom Gingerbread Man. It was my job to put him in the oven during lunch. The class told me not peak too soon in the oven. Well, as I was eating my lunch, I thought I heard the oven timer "ding". I went to take a look and it was too soon! The Gingerbread Man popped out of the oven! He ran back to our classroom and left us a note. After we read the note, we went on a wild goose chase searching around the school for our Gingerbread Man! Below are pictures of the class decorating the cookie, video of the hunt and pictures after the hunt enjoying our tasty treat!

"H" Brothers!

We started learning about those silly "H" brothers this week. We have talked about them from time to time throughout the year and are beyond excited that we get to focus on them individually this week. We started the week off singing songs that go with each of the brothers. The songs are sung to the same tune as "B-I-N-G-O"













Gingerbread Man Story Sequence

Last week, we read several stories about gingerbread people and animals. After reading one of the stories, we sequenced the characters the gingerbread man came across along his journey of running away from so many people and animals. We first read the book and then completed the chart.
