Back to School...a glimpse at week #1!

Hey friends! Sorry I've been MIA. I feel like I am forever apologizing for slacking in the blog department, it's just been insane lately. I just returned yesterday from Georgia, where I judged the Miss Atlanta pageant. So.much.fun! I wish much success to the new winner and know that she will represent ATL so well at the Miss Georgia pageant! Anyways, in the midst of all that....we've been in full throttle with back to school. Students listened to this story...I just love it!
We went on a hunt to try to find the Gingerbread Man...
Clues were everywhere...
Some clues even led us upstairs. We meet all of our school's faculty and staff!
The last clue led us back to our room for a surprise...coloring sheets and a gingerbread cookie!
We did other activities, too. Like cutting, character analysis, and sequencing! We learned a lot our first week in school!
Students even listened to a variety of Gingerbread Man books and learned how to make comparisons. Here is the venn diagram we did as a whole.
Lastly, we wrapped up everything by making a Gingerbread glyph! These turned out oh so cute and my kinders had a blast putting them together. 
Don't forget...all of these activities and more can be found in my Gingerbread Man Back to School Pack.
