Also, this week we will be working on an author study before Christmas vacation. We are studying, Jan Brett, since she has such wonderful winter stories. My co-worker gave me a huge file of materials to use on all of Brett's stories, but I also found a lot of great stuff from Brett's website. We plan to start with The Mitten, Gingerbread Baby, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears We'll be doing tons of activities with all of her stories, so I plan to post as many pictures as I can as we go. In the mean time, check out her website and all the awesome activities she has. I even plan to do some baking with my kiddos....which they will be thrilled about. Here is the recipe from JanBrett.com
I am also going to do a science activity with some store bought gingerbread cookies. They will make a prediction about what will happen when they are dunked in milk....and then they dunk them and make observations.
