Holy cow! I now know what I'm doing for Christmas this year in my classroom! Now I just need to think of a lesson to justify my students creating it.

This helps with writing and also helps the students learn characteristics of the seasons.
This is the making words activity for GINGERBREAD. We did this activity in a large group. I put all of the letters in the pocket chart and the children came up and moved the letters around to make different words. They came up with many words I didn’t even think of! As they built the words, they wrote them on their response sheet.
