Gingerbread Week & Our Five Senses

This week we learned about our five senses and had tons of fun reading "the gingerbread stories"...and comparing them.  The Gingerbread Man is one of my faves!  I didn't snap a lot of pics this week, but here are a few of the fun things we did!  The My Five Senses sheet below, Peppermint Patterns, and Flippin' for Sounds games can be found in my new Gingerbread Fun unit on tpt.  The Tastes of our Tongue isn't in there, but I'll try to get it on as a freebie soon...it was a last minute thing.

Drew pictures our five senses and wrote them

Had a taste test...
 sweet
sour
 sour
 bitter
 For fun, each day we used our sense of smell to decide which scent we would burn in our classroom...
We moved our names on the Promethean board to the one we liked best...
Lemon never won...what's wrong with lemon?  I like lemon?
 We flipped Christmas cookies and listened for the beginning sound of the picture on the back
 Still practicing patterns...
 Our cute little Gingerbread Five Senses anchor chart
 One version of our gingerbread glyphs from Kim Jordano
 We made fraction cookies, labeled them, and of course...added glitter!
Our Five Senses gingerbread man...isn't he cute?

Catch the Gingerbread Man is played the same way as Catch the Turkey from last week's post...

  8. I was wondering if you would be posting your candy cane patterning sheet. We start patterns tomorrow and this would be a great addition.
