This week for math center the students are doing a color by numbers gingerbread man. The first groups did a great job coloring and remembering how to read the color words. Take a look:

For our math lesson today, the students made symmetrical paintings. First, they folded a large piece of paper in half, then unfolded and painted on one side. When done, they refolded and patted down on the top. They loved how their pictures looked when opened back up. Here are a few examples:

Later this week the students will be decorating gingerbread people cookies. If you would like to donate materials please let me know through an email to rmaltz@cps.edu by Wednesday and have the donations to school on Thursday.

Please consider donating;

  • bottled icing
  • sprinkles
  • small tubes of decorating gel

 

Thank you in advance!
