This is such a magical season for our younger students! There are so many opportunities as a teacher to embrace their love of the season. Every December my students' favorite theme is Gingerbread EVERYTHING. Maybe it stems from my own love of cookies and any sweet. We do many cross curricular activities related to The Gingerbread Man story including writing and illustrating, sequencing stories, math and grammar. It all comes together on Gingerbread Day when we use recycled items to build our own little gingerbread houses.
I hope the warmth of this holiday season spreads to all of the Troy Hills families!
