I am getting ready for my Gingerbread Man's World Tour that begins this week! I have written the first letter that he leaves telling about his trip and then the letter from Mexico.
Here is a new book I got at B&N books. It is really fun!
I also love playing Pass The Hot Cookie! This game comes with an inflatable Gingerbread Man, but you could easily play with a plush GMan that you own. The CD plays Christmas music and it stops and pauses on it's own. You could also play your own music and pause it! Last year I had the students go to their seats when they were out and then they got to eat a small Gingerbread Cookie. That way, they weren't sad to be "out!" The final winner got a small Gingerbread Man prize. This is a great party game! I picked up mine at our local party store.
Last night at Target I scored this awesome book! It was in a shopping cart full of items that needed to be returned to the shelves. I couldn't believe my luck! The first country that my Gingerbread Man will visit on his world tour is Mexico! This book will be in the envelope for the kids to see. I may even ask my dear friend who teaches first grade to come and read it since I do not read/speak spanish.
I am getting really excited about this unit!
