Book of the Week

The Gingerbread Man

Color of the Week

White & Brown

This week we are looking for Brown & White together.
This will be easy to achieve with the brown gingerbread man in the book and
the house you make for this week’s special snack!
White frosting and candies may be involved, too!
Have fun with these colors during snack time this week.

Song/Nursery Rhyme of the Week

Gingerbread Song

(to the tune of “The Muffin Man”)

Oh, do you know the Gingerbread Man,
The Gingerbread Man, the Gingerbread Man?
Oh, do you know the Gingerbread Man,
Who ran and ran and ran?

He said, “Catch me if you can,
If you can, if you can.”
He said, “Catch me if you can,
Then ran and ran and ran.

I can run like the Gingerbread Man.
The Gingerbread Man, the Gingerbread Man.
I can run like the Gingerbread Man.
Now catch me if you can.

Letter of the Week

Q for Quick
“Every letter makes a sound, M Says Q says Kwuh!”
(We are focusing on this as the gingerbread man runs fast or QUICKLY through the town!)
See how “quickly” your little sprout can do things; have a race but be safe!

Snack of the Week

Make A Gingerbread House!

Buy a Gingerbread House Kit & your desired candies (unless you are adventurous and like baking the solid structure needed to hold up all the candy and icing!). I made a Chanukah House to celebrate Chanukah this week in my home!
