Ghost Cookies- submitted by Lauren--thanks!
For the letter G, we took Nutter Butter cookies and dipped them in white melting chocolate to make ghost and then let the kids
decorate them with mini chocolate chips and other candies. We also colored some of the white green and made green goblins.
I'm now tall enough
To reach across my bed,
I put my toes on one side,
On the other is my head.
Georgy Porgy, pudding and pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry;
When the boys came out to play,
Georgy Porgy ran away.
Make splishes and sploshes
And slooshes and sloshes,
As Susie steps slowly
Along in the slush.
They stamp and they tramp
On the ice and concrete,
They get stuck in the muck and the mud;
But Susie likes much best to hear
The slippery slush
As it slooshes and sloshes,
And splishes and sploshes,
All round her galoshes!

This is my garden,
(extend on hand forward, palm up)
I'll rake it with care
(make raking motion on palm with other hand)
And then some flower seeds
(make planting motion with thumb and index finger)
I'll plant in there.
The sun will shine
(make circle above head)
And the rain will fall
(let fingers flutter down to lap)
And my garden will blossom
(cup hands together, extend upward slowly until fingers stand straight)
And grow straight and tall.
Cut big G's from construction paper. Let children find "G" pictures in magazines. Cut pictures and paste on outline of G.
Let children decorate the outside of small milk cartons like a face. Place soil in the cartons and add grass seeds. In about a week, the grass will begin to grow and will look like hair.
Gingerbread Boys and Girls
Let the children lie down on long sheets of brown or white paper and trace each other. Paint the figures to represent gingerbread cookies.
Two G ideas from Becky! Thanks, Becky!
Draw an upper and lower case G on a piece of construction paper. Have children trace G's with glue and add glitter.
Have child put bare foot in white washable paint. Step onto dark colored paper. Add wiggly eyes.
G is for Green Bay Packers
Students color a football gold and green. In the center students glitter a big "G".
This idea sent in my Becky. Thanks!!
Letter G activity
I let my Kindergarten class go out to the field at our school and pick two large blades of grass.
I then told them to paint me a picture using their blade on grass dipped in paint. We used
two colors and they really turned out neat! We put them up in the hallway and wrote
"We painted with grass." We have had tons of compliments.
We have a "Goofy Glasses Day" during the week we study letter Gg. I punch out glasses
using die cuts and send them home to be decorated. It's a great project to get parents involved!
The children love to be goofy!
