Hi! We have had a gingerbread filled last two days.
On Thursday, we made a Menorah out of clay and read books about Hanukkah. We also did a science experiment, making a snowy day in a jar and spoke about the weather outside. It's been so cold and snowy! We broke out some gingerbread cookie cutters and made gingerbread people. Yvie "read" us the story of the Gingerbread Boy. Nora decided that the gingerbread people needed a house and made an elaborate house out of clay for them!
Friday was a Gingerbread day. The children had a blast sprinkling flour on the table, squishing the dough, rolling the dough, then choosing which size cookie cutter to use. The whole school smelled good while they were cooking, then we ate them after lunch. Nora was quick to let us know that she ate the head first, and Jack danced around in his chair while eating the cookie, letting us know he liked it a lot. We also painted our clay menorah and lit another "candle."
Have a wonderful weekend!
