Christmas Trees

We made Christmas trees using sugar cones, frosting, and candy. The kids loved this activity.

Our Gingerbread House

As a class, we made a gingerbread house. The kids had so much fun putting it together and decorating it. Here are a few pictures of our house in the making.

Our finished product! Doesn't it look great?


We had our Thanksgiving Unit the week before Thanksgiving. For one of our crafts we made Turkey centerpieces. They turned out so cute. All of the kids did such a great job on their turkeys.

We learned about the Pilgrims and Indians and made costumes. We then had our Thanksgiving feast with yummy sweet potatoes, turkey, fruit, and pumkin pie.

Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!

During our bug unit, we learned all about different types of bugs and their characteristics. We
even went on a bug hunt to try to find bugs in our own backyard. Each of the kids had their own bug catchers.

The hunt was on! We looked under bushes and trees to find any kind of bug.

Our hunt was looking unsuccessful, so we decided to hide some plastic bugs for them to find.

We were sad that no real bugs were found, but satisfied with the plastic ones. It was a pretty fun day.
