Which Gingerbread Are You?
My students are working on a project called the Gingerbread Project. My most wonderful friend, Sophia, introduced me to the project and this is my fourth year doing it. The idea is to have the children focus on completing the class project of designing, baking, decorating and building a gingerbread house that would then be donated to a charity to bring the joy of the season to those less fortunate. Because I am as cheesy and theme-oriented as I am, I take it a little farther. We do about 3 weeks of all gingerbread stuff in my room and the kids learn a ton!! This project is one of my favourites all year long and it's a great way to busy your way through to the end of the craziness of December. But, I digress... My students made paper gingerbread men to hang on our classroom door for a decoration and they had me giggling because each one seems to have a distinct personality that I think I can identify with depending on the day... which one are you today?
