My firsties did the cutest project today!
We made escape routes for our gingerbread men! I gave them an oven and gingerbread man to cut out. I cut a slit in the opening of the oven so they could stick him in to make him look like he was peeking out. They glued a red hot for a nose and used sprinkles for the buttons.
Then they did a little procedural writing to show their plan. Each student was given a map to fill in with 4 empty boxes to show the obstacles the gingerbread man must pass. Of course, I had some who wrote, "Go past the toilet." Ha. I love first grade humor. :P
And a word of advice: Be sure to glue the legs to the back so the poor gingerbread man doesn't fall through!
You can find this cute little craftivity at my store for only $2! Click on the picture to check out it!
Short and sweet tonight, folks! Oh, and you should swing by a new store! A friend and co-worker has uploaded a few things. She has a DARLING activity about Rory the Reindeer. He's a cousin of Rudolph and he has superpowers! They get to go through the writing process and plan out the character of Rory. I can't wait to do it with my kiddos! CHECK IT OUT HERE.
Have a fabulous weekend!
