Hello everyone!

I am super excited to start a flat gingerbread exchange! I'm hoping that I can get a class to participate from every state this year! All you have to do is decorate a paper gingerbread person to represent your state and and send it, along with a letter, to each of the schools that are participating.

Last year when I did this exchange, we tracked our gingerbread friends on a map. It was so much fun to check our mail and see all the letters each day and learn about friends from different states.

If you are interested please PM me with your name and state.

I'll email you back to let you know if your state has been taken or not. If it hasn't, I'll get your school address. The week of Thanksgiving, I'll email everyone a list of schools participating in a label format so that you can easily print labels out and stick it on an envelope. It would be nice to have your letters sent out by December 9th so that we can receive them before winter vacation.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Warm regards, Allison

So far......

New Jersey
Florida
Massachusetts
Kentucky

I think that as long as you are from a different part of the state, it doesn't matter if we have 2 from the same state.

I'm retired, butwant to say for those of you who are participating in the Gingerbread Exchange for the first time, you are in for a treat. Your students will love it! I did this the last year I taught, and it was a wonderful way to introduce the states. Like others, we tracked the states on a map and discussed each gingerbread man and the information that came with them. The kids couldn't wait until I checked my mailbox each day. Enjoy!
