The gingerbread writing paper is from my "Christmas Writing Pack"
This week, we also tasted ginger items and graphed our favorite. I've never had a class consume their ginger items like these kids... that ginger ale was gone in one big gulp!! You can find this activity in my "All About Ginger" unit on TPT.
Switching gears.... you know those moments when you're teaching and a child you never thought would get it has that light bulb moment?! We all have those moments in the classroom. I had one on Friday. I got all teary-eyed. We were discussing different versions of gingerbread books and one of my students answered a question and then he said, "You know how I know that? 'Cuz I turned on my schema!" Did you hear that... he used the word SCHEMA... correctly! That's what teaching is all about for me. :)
