It is hard to believe that we have just two weeks left of school before our break! Next week we will be reading Zebra's World and What Do You Do With a Tail Like This? from the Journeys Reading Series. I will also include the informational text, Animal Babies in Grasslands. The unit can be found here.
We will read Zebra's World and use a tree map to write facts about zebras. For the story What Do You Do With a Tail Like This?, TSW recall details from the story by drawing pictures of the animals in the story on the web. After reading Animal Babies in Grasslands, TSW write about the animals in the story and we will compare and contrast zebras and lions.
Mathematics-Numerals and counting to 20
For Phonics, I plan to review three alphabet letters/sounds each day and we will sort pictures by beginning sounds in the pocket chart.
Dec. 15-19 is our Gingerbread Week!
We will read The Gingerbread Man, Gingerbread Girl, Gingerbread Baby, and Gingerbread Friends. The unit for these activities is here.
We will be making our Gingerbread Houses. The kits were purchased from Oriental Trading and are made of foam.

Mom's Hallway Display-Gingerbread Glyphs
This year she made smaller "pans" to display the gingerbread cookies instead of covering the entire board with silver paper.
