Merry Christmas!

We've been sooooo busy having fun that I haven't posted in a while.  Here are some of the things we've been up to in December......

We're studying 2D & 3D shapes in math.  Creating these Gingerbread houses is the perfect review. Rectangular prism Hershey bars for the door, tootsie rolls for the cylinder chimney, a milk carton cube as the actual house, gumdrop cylinders, candy corn cones, the list goes on and on!!!!!

Leftover Halloween candy helped with our creations!

Sorting #D Shapes

We tasted real gingerbread cookies then created a pie graph.

We compared 3 different Gingerbread Storries

There's actually an addition sentence at the bottom of this tree.

Applesauce Cinnamon Ornaments
You simply mix a lot of cinnamon with a dab of applesauce.  They smell heavenly!!!
