Gingerbread Man Websites

I went on a search for gingerbread man websites to use in my classroom next week. I made a gingerbread man page and put in on my website Linda's Learning Links. Just click on this link: 
Gingerbread Man Websites to find them. I put a shortcut to pages I create on my student's desktop computers. I hope you'll be able to use these.

More Gingerbread Freebies

 To celebrate finally getting my smartboard, I took the gingerbread measurement and sort activities that I sent in my Gingerbread Packet and made a smartboard activity to introduce the sorting and measurement workstations. Just click on the title to download.

I am the Real Recording Artist

I know this might come as a shock to readers of this blog, but Linda McCardle is not the singer of the songs she is posting on her blog. Oh no, it's me Bonita Bunny, aka Bun DMC aka Bonita Blues Bunny! While Linda McCardle is busy with Thanksgiving preparations I have taken over her blog to reveal the shocking truth! I toil in the recording studio (it's me,a (really cheap) microphone and a computer) while she makes me do take after take. She's planning on putting some Christmas songs  on her blog this week. But, did she let me record any songs about Christmas bunnies? Oh no, they're all about elves and reindeer. I begged her to let me tell the true story of the gingergirl bunny, but she insists its the gingerbread man. So, now that you know the real story, try and have a happy Thanksgiving. Don't think about me working while every one is enjoying their time off. At least the boys and girls in Mrs. McCardle's class love me and know who the real singer is, just ask them, they will tell you. Mrs. McCardle even left me at school, but that's okay. I am going to be using her computer and new smartboard, yes she finally has one. (I am so glad, she has whined about it enough). So, look for pictures of me popping up on the web, I am probably going to be the next You Tube sensation, Harry Kindergarten watch out! Thank you for letting me get this off my chest!!
Bonita Bunny
P.S. If you don't hear from me again, call the ASPCP (American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Puppets), because I could have been stuffed in a drawer or closet!

Fall Songs Freebie

Here are some fall songs that my class is singing. Insert the words into powerpoint and click on the song name to download an MP3 audio file. I have gotten several emails about my songs. I record them using my computer and free Audacity software. I use a Suzuki Q chord to play the songs. I hope you will enjoy using them in your classroom.
