Gingerbread Man

For Big Book, we read the story of The Gingerbread Man.

Because we are want to make connections with our learning, we decided to make our own gingerbread man cookies for our Friday cooking activity.

We're sure glad none of our gingerbread men ran off when we took them out of the oven!
