2K Little Learners — Mrs. Schumacher

Week of Dec.1

Christmas

"Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me I'm a gingerbread man!."... or toddler :-) This week 2K will explore the story of the Gingerbread Man, and experience some of the scents that go along with it.  We'll make some appleasauce and cinnamon ornamnents , do some cookie cutter painting, and use gingerbread playdough.  Dressing a paper gingerbread man in  hats, gloves, and boots, will remind us of those things we now have to put on when heading outside.  2K may even get to eat some gingerbread cookies... if we can catch them!  At circle time we have a group activity to sequence the order of making gingerbread cookies, as well as some baking vocabulary words.  ( measure, mix, roll, bake, oven, decorate) We will practice running and "freezing" with the whistle as we run like gingerbead cookies in the gym.

Jesus time:

This week in Chapel we will read "A good day" by Kevin Henkes. Its about a little bird that looses a special feather, but in the end a little girl finds it and ir makes her day special. We can link that to how God can use something sad for good or turn a bad day into a good day. That lost "gingerbread cookie" might not always be found,and things may frustrate us as the book shares, but God helps us turn sad into glad. We are reminded of this in Jesus' death as resurrection as well.
