Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!!!


We have read several versions of the Gingerbread Boy stories over the past couple weeks. 
So today we decorated gingerbread cookies as a little treat.  We planned on eating them right after lunch... but when we came in from recess... they were gone!!!!  Oh no.. where could they be??  We found a clue.... The first clue led us to the library, then the next clue led us to the office, then to the Principal's office, then to the lunch room.... and the last clue led us back to our classroom..... and THERE THEY WERE!!!

YEAH!!!! We found the gingerbread men... Now let's eat them!!
Some kids were creating new characters for themselves at centre time today!

Looks like someone wanted to be Rudolph today!

Merry Christmas, everyone!  Enjoy your holiday.
School starts January 8th. See you all then!

Sound Buster brings the /l/ sound

Sound Buster came today. He taught us about things that have a /l/ sound, and the rhyming family for "ing". Mrs. Mitchell (SLP) showed us some of the things that Sound Buster had brought to teach us about the /l/ sound.

Smart Board activity.... things that start with /l/ and things that end with a /l/ sound
Painting the boxes to find the magic letter to create a rhyme in the "ing" family

Students shared things that they had brought that start with a /l/ sound
We read this funny story today!

Thinking skills game... hmmmm... where does it go? We had an extra teacher helper today working with us for a while today.
One creative person wanted to make a decoration for a shoe!

Gingerbread House

We have a Gingerbread House........ The address is..... 7 Gingerbread Way, Room 7! Does your child know his/her own address? If yes, great!!!  If not, time to teach your child your own address!
The kids have been busy creating (paper) candy decorations to hang on the house. We have put some Christmas books inside the house, as well as a "TV" with the fire log channel on it. And of course, you have to read the numbers on the remote, and the other words on the TV/remote, too! We have been reading different versions of the Gingerbread Boy books. Ask your child to tell you about them!

We did a fine-motor activity today... to help strengthen those little finger muscles. Everyone had a thumb tack, and punched little holes into the outline of a Christmas tree. When they held the tree up to the light, it looked like the tree had a lot of little mini-lights on it!!  Everyone thought that was pretty cool!  Tape the tree to a window at home, to get the full effect!
Here's how one tree looked when held up to the window. The light shines through making a wonderful design on the tree.
