It’s December and that can only mean one thing in Kindergarten....GINGERBREAD!
We have a little gingerbread boy in our classroom kitchen- but he keeps escaping. We hope he doesn’t get away!
Throughout the month of December we have been reading many different versions of the classic children’s tale- “The Gingerbread Man.” We enjoyed comparing and contrasting all of the different versions of the gingerbread boy, girl, man, baby, cowboy and more. We used these stories to integrate all of our learning in math, writing, reading and art. Here are some of our favorite stories!
