Counting Down....

How many days left until Christmas??? The students in my class are looking forward to the Christmas break just as their teacher is!
Last week, our elf Elfina came to watch over us in our classroom! At night, she goes up to speak with Santa to tell him about our behavior. It is SO fun having her! Every morning, we look for her in our classroom to see where she chose to land next. We write her questions and sometimes she even writes us back!

We also read many different versions of the Gingerbread Man last week. Some titles include The Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett, Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett, Gingerbread Girl by Lisa Campbell Earnst, and The Gingerbread Man by Karen Schmidt. There are SO many different titles to choose from! After reading the The Gingerbread Man on Monday, our gingerbread man ran away! We went on a week-long hunt throughout our school looking for him! We finally found him our classroom on Friday and he brought us a treat.... gingerbread cookies!
