Mrs. Burns' Kindergarten
Run, Run, as fast as you can...
This week we have been busy reading different versions of the Gingerbread Man and comparing characters and endings. We have found that though they may have similar characters, the content and endings all differ. In the traditional Gingerbread man for example, he gets eaten by the clever fox, but in the Gingerbread Baby he escapes the fox and is trapped in a Gingerbread house. We have had lots of fun with Gingerbread-themed Math and Literacy centers and coming up with our own endings to the story.
In our classroom, we have had our own little Gingerbread man, who we named "Gingy", that has been watching us work all week. Today, he went missing and "ran and ran"! Gingy left us little clues throughout the school as we tried to find him. After searching the Library, Office, Cafeteria, music room, and Gym we finally found him back in our classroom! He even left us treats... our own home-made Gingerbread men to decorate!
Thank you for making such cute Gingerbread characters over the break. We have loved sharing them and what they each can do. They are displayed for all to see in the hallway.
