Gingerbread Children

Gingerbread Baby, by Jan Brett is a delightful story about a spirited and bouncy Gingerbread Baby created by Matti in his kitchen in a Swiss village. This 'baby' was chased by many people and animals, including Mother, Father, cats, dogs, goats, villagers, etc. The Gingerbread Baby was able to stay just out of reach from being caught, but finally ended up in the best home he could ever ask for.
This story was a perfect introduction for a literature based activity creating gingerbread children.

A note from Mrs. Lee:
It is hard to believe that December is upon us! Can you also believe that we've been in school for 75 days?  Time just flies by!

All the keiki are confident skip counting by 10's.  However, please continue to practice skip counting by 2's and 5's with your child whenever possible.  It takes time for them to master these math skills and practice makes perfect.
