The Gingerbread Man-day 2
We’re still running with excitement about the Gingerbread Man! Today we finished our Predictable Chart, reread the Big Book, and learned a new math game. We also sequenced The GBB using words and simple pictures in a pocket chart.
Tomorrow is the big day–the GBM will go missing! (If you have a Kindergartener in my class this year–please play along! 🙂 ) Once he goes missing, we will have this package delivered to our classroom from “Mexico”. Inside are 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 pieces of red construction paper, a letter from the GBM, and directions on how to make folded paper poinsettias.
I plan to get the kids excited about tasting and graphing with the Pepperidge Farm GBM tomorrow afternoon and then mysteriously at lunch time, they will disappear. Our school secretary will then come rushing down with an “urgent” package and this is what we will get:
This is the package from Brazil for Thursday. I sent myself an e-mail with a Power Point all about Brazil courtesy of Pam (aka kinderdawg) on the KinderKorner yahoo group. Inside this envelope are toucans (see picture below this one) copied on heavy card stock. The children will watercolor the toucans and then we will “varnish” with a thin layer of vegetable oil.
I’ll post more as I get things done. I’m here at school late tonight–I had my hubby drive me to school because I don’t like to drive on the icy roads, which turned out to be just fine! 🙂
