Preschool News - January

Mrs. WackerWelcome back, 2018 is off and running.  Preschool children have completed their first week back after winter break and have spent the week looking for the gingerbread man.  The classrooms baked, decorated and read books about the gingerbread man.  Gingerbread dates from the 15th century, and figural biscuit-making was practiced in the 16th century. The first documented instance of figure-shaped gingerbread biscuits was at the court of Elizabeth I of England. She had the gingerbread figures made and presented in the likeness of some of her important guests.  Our gingerbread man was very elusive this year and still has not been found.  Talk to your preschool child about the gingerbread man and where they think he may be.  Ask your child about the sly character in the books to see if they recall what they learned from the week.  Thank you for sharing your child with our programs.
