Is anyone interested in doing a gingerbread exchange this year? I did it two years ago and my class loved reading about different states and communities. I teach in Houston, Tx.

I have participated for the past couple of years. Two years ago most of the teachers that signed up actually participated. This past year, we weren't so fortunate. We sent out nearly 50 gingerbread men; however, we only received 15. If you find teachers that are committed, then I would love to participate again as the children loved learning about the various places around the country. I teach in Connecticut!

I'm new to 2nd grade, so I'm not familiar with a gingerbread exchange. It sounds neat, though. I'm in Florida.

Gingerbread exchange- you will receive a gingerbread boy to decorate reflecting your state. You will write a letter highlighting facts/ fun facts about your state. The students decorate the gingerbread boy/girl. You send it to the classes of people partaking. My kids love this activity and get excited when a new gingerbread boy arrives.

Interested too. Although I agree with having enough people who are committed in doing it. I organized one a few years ago and towards the send out date people dropped out .

I am in Wisconsin.

Keep us posted and maybe post this in the Post Office board too to attract some people.

I will be willing to organize this! I do not have access to school email over the summer. But PM me on this site and I will keep a record and keep people updated. It looks like we are off to a great start.

I've never done this before, either. This is my last year before retiring. I'd love to do some fun things like this to make this last one memorable. I have a class of 19 in Texas.
