We made our own Gingerbread men. We put them up outside our classroom. We put masks on them because they could not social distance. We talked about the letter V and practiced our ABC song.

Chickadees

Today The Gingerbread sent us a book. It was, The Gingerbread Girl. It was a good story. Ask me how the story ended. We drew chickadees with Mrs. D. We took our time and looked closely at our sticks and our photos. We put a lot of detail in our pictures. We talked about rhyming. Mrs. Kitson read us the book, The Jungle Run. There were many rhyming words in the book. We made words with the at family. We talked about patterns. Mrs. Kitson talked about AB patterns. There are only two elements in an AB Pattern. Look on Brightspace, under my portfolio to see our patterns. (If you are able to use the app email me.) The app does not seem to working for parents. In gym class we ran and jumped through an obstacle course and played freeze dance. We talked about our interests and learned what sports are friends liked to play.
