Homemade Gingerbread

We are beginning our study of fairy tales, which will continue into January. We are starting with The Gingerbread Man and will be focusing on Characters and Setting. Most of our words of the week can be found in the traditional telling of the Gingerbread Man!

Homemade Gingerbread

Stir a bowl of gingerbread,
Smooth and spicy brown.
Roll it with a rolling pin,
Up and up and down.
With a cookie cutter,
Make some little men.
Put them in the oven,
Till half past ten. 

Words of the Week
We are now going to focus on long vowels. The whole class (Grade 1's and 2's) will be learning the same words. We are starting with the long a sound, and learning about the silent e!

This is my favourite Silent e song. The video might be dated... but the song isn't (I sometimes catch the children singing it when they are writing :)
