Anyways, we have been working on some wonderful gingerbread themed activities the past couple of weeks. My kiddos are having a blast with these adorable little guys. I have found great activities for this theme and have been using bits and pieces of what I have purchased or collected over the past year. I love how it is all working together thus far. However, I did run into a small bump in the road with math. My kids have just begun exploring the concept of measuring with nonstandard units. I began with the good old build the cube train to see how long an object is. Well I wanted to let them continue to practice this in an independent workstation so I put together a little gingerbread measuring activity. The kids are eating it up! They look forward to that workstation and are so quiet and productive. It is so fun watching them!
Here's a peek at what the activity looks like!
