Kindergarten

October 18-22

This week was a very exciting one in Kindergarten! We started it off by listening to another Gingerbread Man story and the students compared it to the ones that we previously read together in class. They then got to decorate their own delicious-smelling gingerbread men and kept a close eye on them while they were drying, just to make sure they wouldn’t run away! Unfortunately, our gingerbread men were very clever and decided to run away when we put them in the oven to warm up! Luckily, the Kindergarteners were up for the challenge and successfully tracked them down after visiting all the classrooms and offices in the school…which I’m sure you all heard about at home!
