Gingerbread Baby!!

Gingerbread is fun to learn about around the holidays!  We started the week off by reading the classic story of the Gingerbread Boy.  We learned a little rhyme that the kids LOVED saying as they ran around outside and pretended to be either the gingerbread boy or the fox!
Run, run, as fast as you can.
You can’t catch me,
I’m the Gingerbread Man!
After learning all about gingerbread, the kids were excited to try a gingerbread cookie.  Almost all of the children liked it!
We also read a darling twist to the traditional story of the gingerbread boy called the “Gingerbread Baby” by Jan Brett.  
At the end of the story, the witty little boy catches the gingerbread baby by making him a gingerbread house!  The kids really enjoyed decorating their own gingerbread baby and house!  They turned out so cute!

 

 
We also had fun making Play-doh Christmas shapes this week!
 

  We also delighted in Mother Goose’s visit! This week she brought Christmas ornaments and shared Christmas stories and songs!
  Practicing “Jingle Bells” for when Santa comes to visit the preschool!!

Learning through play during centers this week.  From drawing to puzzles to playing pet store, these kids are learning so many social and academic skills like eye-hand coordination, role playing, and expressing emotion.  There’s so much to learn at preschool!

 

 

Christmas is coming!  Next time we’ll share our pictures from Santa’s upcoming visit!
