News for the week of November 26th

Gingerbread Man

We will start a "Gingerbread Man" unit this week. We will be reading many different versions of this classic story and comparing them in class. Below are images of a few of the different versions we will be reading and talking about. We will also be participating in a "Gingerbread Exchange". This week we will decorate 15 different paper gingerbread men and we will be sending them to different Pre-K classes around the United States. We will send them out this Friday, November 30th and then we will begin receiving different gingerbread men from other classes starting next week. This will be a fun activity that is also an introduction to geography, as we will be pointing out different states on the map that our gingerbread men arrived from.

Jolly Phonics

Our Jolly Phonics letter of the week is "E". The action for the letter "E" sound is to pretend to tap an egg on the side of a pan and crack it into the pan, saying eh, eh, eh. See video below for the Jolly Phonics "E" song!
