More Gingerbread Fun

We are continuing our Jan Brett author study. We retold the story of The Gingerbread Baby, and even looked at a gingerbread play-dough recipe! The author who wrote the recipe was trying to teach us how to make the play-dough we decided…. that goes along with our author’s purpose study. I was impressed the students were able to use 1/2 and 1/4 cup measuring cups to figure out how many scoops would equal a hole cup, etc. Afterwards, we wrote down the recipe so students could make another batch at home! This was so much fun!!

A Gingerbread Day

Today we read Jan Brett’s The Gingerbread Baby. We stopped along the way and predicted what would come next in the story. I reminded students that entertainment stories are fiction, so some of the responses got pretty silly which made for great laughs. The students enjoyed writing their predictions on their desks and leaving journals tucked away.

We wanted to be just like the character, Mattie, and make a gingerbread house, so… WE DID!! The kids went nuts and were thrilled to take part in this. We will recap the making of our gingerbread houses tomorrow and write an informative article on how someone could make their own based on our steps.

Button Graphing

We kicked off our graphing this week with a collection of buttons and a story called The Button Box. While reading, we learned that there are many different kinds of buttons. The students were able to explore a wide variety of them, and then graph data based on a handful of buttons they were given. Who knew buttons could be so much fun?
