Gingerbread Men Cookies

A sinus infection has kept me home today since I have no voice. So I am working on some school stuff. One thing we are doing this week is making gingerbread cookies in the classroom. I have made a cute recipe to display while making this recipe. I hope to get a chance to create a writing page to go with it too. Lets see how productive I am today.

Here is a quick freebie. This week we are working on compound words and needed a way to get the kids up and moving. I will give each student a word and they need to find their partner to make a compound christmas word. If you would like it click here.

I knew it was late last night, just noticed I put the wrong year on it. LOL!!!
