Gingerbread Glyphs and A Few Hours Left

I don't know about you, but these first two days back to work have been C-R-A-Z-Y! I want to get all our holiday project underway so we can enjoy them before we have to take them down and go on winter break. Three weeks is nothing! We've got a lot to do people!!

Today we got to work on our gingerbread glyphs. The kids love these projects. I never tell them what we are going to be making. I try to see how long it takes them to figure it out. Here they are answering the questions on their white boards.


Next, they started assembling their glyphs depending on how they answered the questions.


Once their glyphs were assembled, we did some whole class data collection. Here are a couple of examples.



To display the glyphs, I decided to make a cookie jar on one of my interior classroom doors. Some of the gingerbread men are jumping out of the cookie jar, while others are happy as can be to be inside the jar!



The kids were cracking up as they were gluing the eyes on. Some kids were very traditional, while others were goofy as can be. I love their creativity!

If this is a project you would like to do with your class, just click on the picture below and grab your copy while it is still in sale at TpT!

I also have the gingerbread men activity in my Gingerbread Fun Literacy Centers (It does not include the data collecting sheets). It includes writing prompts and primary and intermediate writing papers. Click on the pic below if you are interested. It is still on sale at TpT as well!

I hope everyone was able to get their TpT wishlist filled these last two days! But if not, there is still time to shop! I have a couple things I still need to get before the night is over, too!
