GBM–things I forgot to post!

Here are some assorted pictures of things I forgot to post during our Holidays Around the World/GBM theme in December.



I made these gingerbread men characters using wooden spoons I got at the Dollar Tree a few years ago.  The children sit in a circle and as we re-tell the story, the characters go chasing each other around the circle.


I got the patterns from the December Mailbox book–the one that has things to do for the entire month–not the magazine!


It’s always fun and gets lots of laughs–but it also shows you how much they know about the story!


Here is the top of the bellflower we made when the GBM sent us a package from down under.


We made it a true “bell” flower by putting a bell inside.



Here is the letter from the GBM from Australia.  


We also made a graph showing where we bit first off of our GB cookie:


Here is the poem that was in our pocket chart:


I also ended up putting in the props that we used to act out the GBM in the chart for a few weeks and the kids had fun doing that.

  1. Kristen, I know you are very busy, but is there a way for you to put the GBM unit all in one spot to look at and download? Thanks Regina

      Hi Regina,
      If you do a search for the GBM (use just the letters) or if you scroll down you will see all my categories on the left hand side of any of the pages. You can click on the GBM-Holidays Around The World and it will bring up all the posts I’ve linked to that category. I am unable to put them all in one post, because it would require me to repost all of the pictures (on two different computers) and take up more server space. But if you do a search or use the category link, it will show them to you in chronological order, so the days will all build upon one another.
      Kristen 🙂


  2. Which December Mailbox Magazine did the puppets come from? Grades 1-3 or Pre-K I was looking for the number at the bottom of the page, but it is too blurry. It looks like TEC 195. Thanks!
