We began our gingerbread unit today. We read "The Gingerbread Man" story in the morning. Then, in the afternoon we read, "The Gingerbread Girl." In fact, we will be reading many different kinds of gingerbread stories next week. Also, we will be doing lots of other fun gingerbread activities.
Today, we made a gingerbread glyph. The questions from the glyph determined what materials you received to make your own gingerbread man. For example, one question asked: "What is your favorite type of cookie?" The answers you gave determined what color of gingerbread man you received. I have a copy of the glyph questions in a picture below.
