I would ask one of the kids if they could find the capital/lowercase letter and when they found it they got to erase it. Once we had a clean board we were able to do some baking.
Next we made some peppermint fudge.
Miss Priss and Bubba enjoyed crushing all the candy canes with their spoons.
Next we did the letter C. C is for candy. We practiced writing our letter C with chalk on black construction paper, hung candy canes on our tree, made candy canes out of pipe cleaners, & did some M&M candy color sorting. This was their favorite part, since they got to eat the M&M's afterwards.
** For tomorrow we are doing the letter "D" for Dear Santa and we are going to make up our wish lists for Santa and then I plan to do some science with them using the book Why do Leaves Change Color? I had wanted to do this book in November, but it took a while for it to come in at the library. There was a huge wait list so we will do it now. It actually works out well since we have been talking about fall for so long I think the kids will understand it a little more. I plan for us to make some leaf tracings as well.
