Learning Centers about Gingerbread

Our Gingerbread Puppets!

Reading an interactive story about a Gingerbread boy.

Decorating the gingerbread puppets we made at our Distance Learning from the Puppetry Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

Playing a gingerbread game and eating gingerbread cookies. Yummy!

Following directions to decorate a gingerbread boy.

"Give your gingerbread boy one green stripe for each brother you have."

The children took one bite and put the cookie down.  We graphed what part of the gingerbread boy they ate first.

Making clothes for our gingerbread puppets.

Gingerbread Boy Puppet Distance Learning

The first grade classes participated in a Distance Learning coming from  a presenter at the Puppetry Center in Atlanta, Georgia.  We listened to various renditions of the Gingerbread boy story.  Then we followed directions to make a Gingerbread boy puppet of our own.  We had a fieldtrip and never even left our school!

Valentine's Day Fun

Our Valentine's party was a fun one.  We opened lots of Valentines from special people.  We made a pretty cuff craft, played a cupcake walk game and took home lots of treats.  Love was in the air!
