Bad dog! Bad, bad, bad dog!
I was so mad at our dog! Our dog, Lily, has some MAJOR eating disorders. She constantly hounds us for food. She sniffs the house and searches everywhere for a crumb that someone may have dropped. Well today she was in luck because she dug open our Gingerbread house box and went to town on the front part of the house! I still have no idea how she got the box in the first place, but her nose will find anything. At first I was mad at her, then I just had to laugh it off because I felt so sorry for her. I think she was mad at me when I took the cookie away from her.
We still enjoyed some fun learning despite the above incident. Since we couldn't really enjoy our Gingerbread house, we did some Gingerbread Subtraction from our 10 Christmas Math Centers
I put our Gingerbread Subtraction cards into one of cute dollar store containers, which made math that much more exciting. We used our Christmas decorated pocket chart to match the subtraction problems to the correct gingerbread man. This was followed up and independent subtraction page. So much FUN!
Next we made some ADORABLE snowflakes! This little winter craft is so easy, even the 3 year old had fun making these! Since coffee filters are so cheap, we were able to make a ton of them! This is such an easy craft and they all come out so pretty. I took a little sewing thread and hung them up so they looked like falling snowflakes. I found a great tutorial on how to make these on Pinterest!
Finally, we made these cute Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer from Tamara at Teaching with TLC!
