Kindergarteners Become Gingerbread Architects

J. Harvey Rodgers School became a winter wonderland in December as teacher Lori Kaszupski’s kindergarteners decorated gingerbread houses with candy canes, Skittles, gumdrops, vanilla icing, peppermint candies, cereal and more. Parents joined in on the fun.


The activity was a natural extension of the students’ language arts activities, which included reading about gingerbread houses in “The Gingerbread Baby.”


See below for a few pictures from the day.
