The week before Christmas, the children have been studying about baking and gingerbread. We have read several different versions of the Gingerbread Man. We've read the Gingerbread Girl, Gingerbread Cowboy, Gingerbread Man, and Gingerbread Friends. We've done activities about gingerbread including taking a bite of a gingerbread man and then recording what part they bit into first and drawing a picture of what was left after they tasted it. We have a Gingerbread house in our classroom that the children can go in to read. Reading has become very popular this week if it means getting to sit in the house. We went caroling around the school today and handed out gingerbread ornaments that the children made. The children attached a tag to the ornament that explained the history of gingerbread. (Afternoon pictures will be attached this evening).
