Last week we started our gingerbread unit. I am sorry I did not get to post my visual plans last week. My first graders absolutely love the gingerbread man books and the activities we did. Their favorite was the gingerbread man experiment. It is a freebie by Abby Mullins, you can snag it here!
I apologize for the gingerbread heads on my students, but I don't want to share their faces publicly. You can still tell that they were SHOCKED by what happened in the experiment.
We also went on a gingerbread hunt. Jodi of Fun in First made this adorable freebie! Here is the (link). The kids had a blast!
We also made gingerbread play dough! They loved it. Here are the half class and individual recipes.
Just click to download for free.
We also completed a gingerbread themed make ten to add project.
Here are my plans for this week:
I am linking up with my rockstar friend, Deedee. Um, how does she get her visual plans done each week on time and with all the links? I am just so impressed.
This week we introduce the Kindness Elf! I added a letter to the packet from the kindness elf. It is a free download. If you already downloaded it last week, redownload for the updated letter.
We are going to be utilizing my Teaching Compassion at Christmas Time unit.
I hope you all have a great week!
