Gingerbread People Exchange

What started out as a simple reading of a blog post late one night turned into a most enjoyable experience for the First Graders in the Tri-Town Schools. During the month of December first grade classrooms cut, glued, and decorated gingerbread people of all shapes and sizes. Each class also wrote a letter about their class and school. Both of these things were packaged up and sent off to all the other first grades who anxiously waited for their mail to arrive.

As the packages arrived students soon enjoyed a new and unique gingerbread person along with a letter from the creator's class. Classes were so creative and even shared QR codes, scribble press books, book creator tales and ideas about their classrooms.
This sharing across towns was very exciting.

A few of the Gingerbread People that traveled across the towns.


1. Students decorate Gingerbread People.
Optional template was included. Teachers were free to create their own design as well.
2. Write a short letter from your class about your classroom/school.  
You may even Print out a class picture to send along with your Gingerbread Person and letter.

A special thank you to all the TriTown teachers who participated in our first Gingerbread Exchange!
