[room 209m] week eighteen gingerbread
December 22, 2016
Every year at the end of the calendar year, I read a bunch of different versions of the gingerbread boy story to my class during read aloud. This year we read The Gingerbread Boy by Paul Galdone, The Gingerbread Man by Eric A. Kimmel, The Gingerbread Girl by Lisa Campbell Ernst, and The Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett. No matter what versions of the book we read, I always end right before vacation with The Gingerbread Baby because it’s the perfect segue into building gingerbread houses. If you’ve never read The Gingerbread Baby before, you really should read it because it’s a neat version of the story. Anyway, here’s a few pictures from our gingerbread house adventure this year.

Who doesn’t love candy on gingerbread houses?
