Today was all about gingerbread! After reading, The Gingerbread Boy last week, we read The Gingerbread Girl today and compared it to last week’s version and enjoyed the fun twist to the ending! We also had fun designing ourselves as a gingerbread boy/girl and making a gingerbread book. For science, we did an experiment to see what would happen if a gingerbread man fell into a bowl of water, “a river”. After letting him “swim” for a little bit, we learned when wet, our little friend got very soggy. We then had fun holiday rotations with our other kindergarten friends switching classrooms and doing holiday games, songs and dances. Our day ended with a little math and taste testing. We each got a gingerbread cookie and were able to take one bite to collect some data. We graphed what part we ate first; head, arm or leg. After graphing, analyzing and tallying our data, we enjoyed the rest of our cookie. It was an extra “sweet” day!
Today was Polar Express day here in Rm.5! We listened to the story The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg and enjoyed a fun day in our jammies. We reviewed our 5 senses by smelling, tasting, touching and looking at hot chocolate. We reviewed our letters, it/ip words and numbers using “snow cream” during literacy stations. It was a cozy, fun day in kindergarten!
