My mother-in-law is planning to have a Christmas party/cookie swap in December. Because my husband likes to do things well, he's been experiementing with different cookie recipes. Gabrielle usually assists him. I've just been helping to taste test! These were similar to gingerbread cookies. We iced them. They tasted more delicious after icing but looked cuter before they were iced.
We've been continuing our point of view unit in reading. (And I've also been spending LOTS and LOTS of time giving 1:1 assessments.) We read the Three Little Pigs. Then, the students read a version I wrote from the 1st little pig's point of view. Finally, they had to choose to write a story from either the 2nd or 3rd little pig's point of view. Their stories were a HOOT. To grab a free copy of my story, click here or on the image below.
For the assembly, children could invite veterans they knew to be honored. Each grade level did something special, and our music teacher practiced a song with the 2nd and 3rd grade classes so they could sing it at the assembly. They did it beautifully.
Thank you for visiting today! Please join us if you can! Have a great weekend.
