We Caught the Gingerbreadman!
What a fun Dec. 1 in K! Yesterday we made our gingerbread dough and today we baked "the man"! He escaped out of the oven leaving a trail of ginger crumbs on the floor. We were on the hunt! We visited almost every room looking for Ginger using his smell to lead our noses toward him. When we finally found him, he was yummy!! It was an exciting time. :) We doubled the Jan Brett gingerbread baby recipe so we'd have plenty of gingerbread to enjoy!
There are so many fun things to do in class this time of year, just not enough time! We are reading One Wintry Night by Ruth Bell Graham. It's a little longer book, so we are reading a few chapters at the end of each day. If you've never read this Christmas story, it's wonderful. It talks about our need for a Rescuer, Jesus. It tells the story from creation to Jesus' death and resurrection. It's truly one of my favorite Christmas stories, and Ruth has such a way with her story telling. Truly a must read this time of year!
Hope you have visions of Gingerbread dancing in your dreams tonight!
