We LOVE Gingerbread at Christmas time!
After reading LOTS of Gingerbread Man stories, we cut out and decorated our own!
“Gingerbread Friends” kept us company all day!
Then we rolled out some gingerbread dough, and cut out our OWN cookies!
We baked them for a FULL 8 minutes, and DIDN’T peek!!!
We LOVED them!
At center time, we spelled “gingerbread” words with chenille stems!
Of course, our words are CHRISTMAS words!!!
We also graphed gum drops from our Gingerbread Nativities!
It was fun playing in our GINGERBREAD Sensory table!
We remember the REAL reason for the Season, is Jesus our Savior’s birth! Here He is with Mary and Joseph in our Gingerbread Nativities!
Merry Christmas to us, Everyone!
Happy Birthday, Jesus!

We were excited to have our friends from Divine Savior Lutheran Church in Zacapa, Guatemala, visit our classroom today!
Senora Amey and they helped us sing some songs in Spanish!
We had fun!
Then we got to make turkeys with crayons, glue and paper “feathers”!
In Guatemala, they eat turkey for Christmas dinner!
Merry Christmas and thank you for stopping by! God bless all of you!

We learned about a special man, John Chapman!
He planted apple trees for the pioneers in our country’s Midwest states!
We loved the Disney movie version about “Johnny Appleseed”!
These are our favorite apples!
Each of us helped peel apples to make applesauce!
It cooked all day and was DELICIOUS!
The apple peelings were a treat for our feathered friends and squirrels!
We hope they store these for the Winter!
Thank You, God, for “Johnny Appleseed” (John Chapman), and his help in planting apple trees!

We have been learning about APPLES!
Here are the 6 parts of an APPLE!
One part is the center or CORE! We made these torn art APPLES in ART!
We “made APPLE pies” at our Sensory table,
ordered numbered APPLES to 30, and measured ourselves!
Next, we stamped APPLE slices in paint! We chose our favorite APPLE color: red, green or yellow.
A beautiful APPLE tree! Our classes’ favorite APPLE is red!
Then we tasted other APPLE foods. Pie, sauce, juice and slices with caramel! YUM!!
Our classes’ favorite APPLE food was “slices with caramel!”
At center time we weighed APPLES and compared their weight to other fruits and vegetables.
Our journals reveal OUR favorites!
THANK YOU, GOD, FOR DELICIOUS APPLES!!!
