Our Gingerbread Bulletin Board

Our new bulletin board is up and it is based on a class activity of decorating a cardboard gingerbread cookie using a "glyph."  A glyph is a fun way to graph information.  For instance, if the child is a boy he give his gingerbread cutout circle eyes and if she are a girl, she gives her cutout triangle eyes.  If the child has siblings, the cut out makes their nose face right and if they are an only child, the nose faces left and so on.  After the children make their gingerbread cookie, they looked at the class data.  they sepearted themselves into categories and graphed the information and then answered questions about their representation.  This was a fun activity with lots of learning!
