Beginning Christmas: Gingerbread Stories

We officially have 19 school days left until the end of the year! Eeek! I also have 6 more reports to write & a ton of editing to do, a classroom to pack up & move rooms, etc, etc but I am still excited for the end of the year and all the fun of Christmas.

Today we started Christmas activities with a week of Gingerbread fun. 
We read Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett then made these adorable Gingerbread Babies from Mrs Miner's KindergartenDownload the freebie here.

We played this Roll the Gingerbread game from Little Giraffes. Download the freebie here.

We did some Gingerbread addition and subtraction using this freebie packet from the Moffatt girls (I photocopied p3 & 4 so they were on the same page).

Hopefully I will be back tomorrow to update you on the rest of the fun plans for this week (I'd keep typing but I'm exhausted).

Happy Monday,

Currently November

How did November happen? Excited but gee-whiz it came up quickly! Linking up with Farley to share the November Currently love.

Listening to Buffy, season 4. 

Loving the gorgeous, hot 30C (90F) days lately which has been fantastic. Loving Spring and everything about it, except maybe the hayfever.

Thinking that we are starting Literacy testing this week and I have to get booklets ready plus I have a few days off of school coming up which I have to prepare for. Busy, busy.

Wanting & Needing
Personally, we have some stuff happening at the minute. I am no good at waiting for answers, which hopefully we'll have more of this week but we are both ready to know what direction our life will be headed in. Sorry to be cryptic but if you're the praying kind, a few prayers sent our way would be much appreciated.

Oh my goodness my kidlets are addicted to The Day the Crayons Quit

I have read this about a dozen times in the last fortnight, love it but it's driving me crazy!

Happy November,
