As we continued on with our gingerbread unit we completed math addition story problems about gingerbread men.  We also made gingerbread men glyph.  Finally we made / ate our own gingerbread cookies and decorated them with frosting and sprinkles.

Last week had our unit on cold weather animals or winter animals.  We read an interactive story called “Penguin, Penguin” and labeled main ideas and details on a thinking map.  Finally students made penguin glyphs based on their preferences about winter.

We also read nonfiction books about winter animals and got into partner groups and practiced reading easy reader books about winter animals.  Finally we practiced following directions and made TLC art walrus.

This week marks my favorite week, The Polar Express week!  On Monday we read the story and students retold the story by putting pictures in the right order.  They also shared with the class what happened on their part of the story.  Finally they retold the story in correct sequence order by doing a cut and paste activity.

Today students wrote about what they would choose as the first gift of Christmas (A silver bell, pony, and genie bottle).  At the end of the day students created a train glyph, answering questions about trains.
