We have been enjoying several versions of the Gingerbreadman stories. We made these "Gingerbread Kid Glyphs". The rules for the glyph were: If you are a girl, make BLUE eyes. If you are a boy, make BLACK eyes. If you are 5 years old, make RED buttons. If you are 6 years old make GREEN buttons. The rest of the decorations were up to each child. Look at our Gingerbread Kids and see if you can tell if a girl or boy made it, and if the child was 5 or 6 years old. Have fun!
See our link to the right for more Gingerbread Fun, but hurry, the Gingerbread site will run away soon!
Milly at Manaia Kindergarten made a video of the Hokey Tokey. We really enjoyed watching it. In America, we have a song that is VERY similar. We call it the Hokey Pokey! Our friends in Ms. Frandsen's class (Room 103) joined us in the commons to dance. We made a video to share with our New Zealand friends. We hope you like it Milly!
Yesterday we didn't have school because there was lots of ice. We decided to make a chant for our charts about it. We used Flickr Storm to find images of ice storms and the morning class voted for the picture. The afternoon class recorded the chant at Voice thread. You can also print out a copy to read along with us at home. Click here to download or print out a copy: Ice Storm Chant.

After many weeks of rehersals, we finally had our big event last night. Everyone looked so nice! If anyone was nervous, it didn't show. Voices rang loud and clear. You should all be so proud! Thanks to Miss Ellis for another successful Holiday Sing.
Overnight we got the first REALLY GOOD snow of the season. (Just in time for our Holiday Sing tonight). We know that our friends in New Zealand and in other parts of the world don't get to see or play in the snow, so we made this show to share with you...

Our friends at Manaia Kindergarten are showing Nutkin a really good time in his new surroundings in New Zealand. Rohan invited Nutkin to spend the weekend with him. He took lots of photos and made an adorable video to share with us. Thanks Rohan your video is GREAT! Mania Kindergarten is also looking for input on naming Emma's bunny. Be sure to cast your vote for the name you think fits the baby bunny. Thanks again Friends!
