We have been having lots of fun in first grade. December was a fun month with the holiday season. Now that we are back from break, we are learning lots of new skills. We recently did a Unit on the Gingerbread Man. We read a lot of different versions of the story and then used a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast two of the stories. The kids picked a partner or small group to do this activity with. The students also wrote how they would catch the Gingerbread Man. We used Legos and worked together to build a trap to catch him. Finally, we used graham crackers, frosting, and candy to make a gingerbread house.
