I am SO excited to do this unit with my kids this week!
So much so that this is what I did on my Saturday night:
Gingerbread house prototype!!!
And my living room has turned into a gingerbread house prep factory!!!
I love it!
On top of the fun, though, there's TONS of Common Core aligned activities- I'm talking reading comprehension, writing, math!!!!- to engage your students!
Plus, EVERY single thing you need to have a successful gingerbread building house celebration is included here! Everything! Directions, tips, tricks, family letter! I'm all set!
I've even turned it into an incentive for good behavior (because they're a little
whack-a-do lately excited about Santa coming- if you know what I mean...)! Kids earn quarters for good behavior, and on Thursday they're going to visit the gingerbread supply shop and purchase the items they want to decorate their gingerbread houses on Friday!
I'm looking forward to a fun gingerbread week with my students thanks to Amy!!!
