Special Gingerbread Man Read Aloud

Mr. Paciulli and Ms.Ross read the story Gingerbread Man to all of the Kindergarteners at Academy School.  They also brought in a special treat.... gingerbread cookies!!  They were delicious! Have a wonderful holiday break!!

Glitter, Glitter, Glitter....... Everywhere

A grandmother and dad came in this week and had an ornament making session with the Kindergarteners!  They took pinecones, glue and tons of glitter and made the most beautiful ornaments to bring home to their families!

Cookies, Frosting and Sprinkles....what fun!!

We had such fun decorating our gingerbread cookies!  I think there was more frosting on their faces and fingers than on the cookies, but oh well!  It was so much fun!! Yummy!!!

Baking Gingerbread Cookies

After a mouth long unit reading the Gingerbread Man stories, what else could we do but actually bake our own!

Performing At All School Sing

We were very brave and performed Jingle Bells at All School Sing this week in front of the whole school!  Both our singing voices and our musical instruments sounded FANTASTIC!

Holiday Musical Instrument STEAM Project

Our holiday STEAM project was to make a musical instrument out of a stick, bells and beads and to have me record them singing the song "Jingle Bells".  The kids had so much fun making it them!
