Christmas Concert and Gingerbread Fun!

The Christmas concert went great! They did a great job singing and looked adorable in their concert outfits :) Here are some pictures from the concert!

We got a surprise package delivered to our classroom! Our very own elf on the shelf. We named him Elfie Brian. He has been watching us in the classroom to make sure we are being good bucket fillers :) He has been up to some mischief in our classroom and hallway, but he is a good reminder for us to be good friends and students!

We have been reading the different gingerbread books and comparing the setting, characters, refrain and ending of each book! The students enjoyed the story "The Gingerbread Baby" by Jan Brett. We watched a video on YouTube where Jan Brett taught us how to draw our own gingerbread baby. The kids loved trying watching her illustrate the gingerbread baby and creating their own! Here are our gingerbread babies!

During writing time we wrote about what it would be like if we were a gingerbread boy or girl!









We started our unit about holidays around the world last week by learning about Christmas. We read the book, "A New and Improved Santa" and created our own Santas! Here are our creations:
