Gingerbread man


Run, Run as fast as you can. You can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man!

I recently started teaching 1st and 2nd grade Korean students English. It has been a real struggle, these kids are just learning how to write in Korean, and their mothers want me to teach them to read and write in English >.<

One poor boy in my class can spell better in English than Korean.

Anyhow, I am always trying to find fun activities for them to do, and what better than making gingerbread cookies after reading "The Gingerbread Man" The kids loved the book, but they loved the cookies even more. These are some that I made to show them what gingerbread men can look like. Then they all made their own.

At one point in time I had photos of the cookies the kids making the cookies, but the hubby reformatted my hard drive recently and may have forgotten to back up all my files :(
