Merry, Merry!

Hi Everyone!
I have shared many pictures today from this week's fun!...The Gingerbread Man Hunt, Polar Express Day and our party yesterday.  It's been a great week.  Enjoy the rest of this marvelous season!  Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy new year!!

The rest of the pictures from our party can be seen by clicking on the Photos button above or click here!!  They are adorable!!!

All Aboard!!!

Wearing jammies to school is the best!  We celebrated the classic book The Polar Express on Wednesday.  

We started our day with some surveys related to the movie.  The three surveys were:
Do you like marshmallows in your hot chocolate?
Have you ever ridden on a train?
Did you ever see the movie The Polar Express?

Once 10 friends were surveyed, the kids graphed the results.

Roll and Cover game

Tickets, please!

What did Twinkle bring back from the North Pole?

It's a bell!!


Run, run as fast as you can.......

On December 15th, a package arrived from the office marked 
"To the Kindergartners, From the Gingerbread Man! Catch me if you can!"
This started a hunt around the school in search of him (A very excited, noisy hunt I must say).  He left some clues and we followed the sweet cinnamon-smelling trail.The kids were overjoyed and extremely'll see that in the pictures below! 

Mrs. Miller arriving with the package!!!

Hmmmm....I wonder what is inside?

It's gingerbread cookies and a note!!!

We are coming to get you G Man!

Looking fierce heading to the media center!!

Could he be hiding in a book?

He left this note behind with Mrs. Blaustein..
“I've read lots of books,
But I'm gone, can't you see?
I'm a gingerbread man and you can't catch me!
Look for me by a friendly face who answers phones in a busy place.”

Our second stop was at the office.  It sure is a busy 
place with lots of friendly faces!
No Gingerbread Man in the office either but he left this note:
“The secretaries have a friendly face, 
And answer phones in a busy place. 
Find me by the leader of our school.”

Who’s our leader?  Why Mr. Martin, of course! That's not Mr. Martin though!  That's Mrs. D!  Mr. Martin was off chasing him.
 Here's the note he left behind:
“This is the principal's office.
He's nice, you know.
He told me not to run anymore,
But to walk, wherever I go.
Go find me where lunches are made.”

Here is where lunches are made but it doesn’t look like 
the Gingerbread Man is here anymore!  He did leave behind a mess, though.  
Mrs. Kunka and Mrs. Madar were cleaning it up when we came in!
The kids listened very carefully while the note we found was read:
“This is the lunchroom.
These friends like us a bunch,
And always make sure we have a good lunch.
I'm getting a bit tired as you can see,
Room 12 is where I'll be!”



We LOVE our gingerbread man!!

To eat or not to eat????!!!  See below....




So ends the tale of our Gingerbread Man!
