All last week we talked about folktales and one of my favorite folktales we talk about over the holidays, is The Gingerbread Man. So all last week we read gingerbread related folktales and did compare and contrast activities between the books.
One very unique story we read during this unit is Gingerbread Baby. In this story the gingerbread character doesn’t get eaten by the fox at the end, the little boy makes a house for the gingerbread baby! We talk about how the ending from Gingerbread Baby is different from all the other endings we’ve read. Then we make a gingerbread house art project.
Sorry about the very long delay. Things have been super busy.
As part of our Who We Are International Baccalaureate unit, we talked about the holidays and how many different cultures celebrate different holidays and with different traditions. We talked about Thanksgiving and how one of the ways to celebrate Thanksgiving is by sharing food and being thankful. We read the story Stone Soup as a class. Then as a whole school, each class brought in an ingredient and we had Stone Soup together as a whole school.
