This week we are learning about the Gingerbread Man! It is a fun story to read with many opportunities for the children to “read” with you, but the original does have a tragic ending when the fox catches and eats the gingerbread cookies. We used masks to act out our own version of the Gingerbread man. We made and played with Gingerbread Play Dough, and practiced writing our name and our letters of the week. You may have noticed we are not learning the letters in alphabetical order, there is a reason for the madness! We are following the order that is suggested in the program Handwriting Without Tears.
