I am reading a song/story of the Gingerbread Man (GBM) instead of Gingerbread Baby. It is a lot of fun because we get to participate by singing, “Run, run, as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m the Gingerbread Man” as we run. We will do an experiment to see why the GBM does not want to cross the river. We’ll put a GBM cookie in a clear cup filled with water (like the river) and wait for a few minutes. We’ll talk about sink and float and predict what will happen. We also get to take a bite from a GBM cookie. Then we’ll graph what our first bite was: head, foot, or arm. We will talk about most and least when we look at our completed graph. If we have time we will also follow two and three step directions to find Gingerbread Men in our room.
Have a beautiful winter break. I have so enjoyed working with you and your child in 2016. I look forward to the next few months ahead.
