December goes so fast before the break there isn’t much time to get a bulletin board together. Our school has decided to decorate a winter wonderland that will be left up for the beginning of January. I try to remain culturally sensitive so decided a gingerbread house would do. We are still working on adding more candy canes. I thought you might also enjoy this project so I posted it. I came across these candy canes on pinterest that are the perfect thing for quick decorating and can remain up after the break. I also had all the materials on hand. They only took about 15 minutes and all of my students enjoyed making them from the youngest to my 5th graders. The stripes seem to appear like magic. The directions provide opportunities to practice words such as center, corner, straight, edge, center, square, and tube. The older students formulated the directions and recorded them for the younger ones. My articulation students practiced using their clear speech. It is amazing how many goals can be worked on with such a simple project.
The directions for the candy canes are in Storykit as usual.
