“You can’t catch me!” “I’m the gingerbread man!”

Good Morning Readers!

It’s Sunday, which means its time to teach my favorite Sunday School class! This week we are taking a hands on approach to our classroom theme, “The gingerbread Man.” Most people tend to focus on snowmen and Santa Claus , but I chose to do gingerbread men instead. This week our plan is to actually make gingerbread man cookies! I’m super excited. I’m definitely the teacher that likes to take hands on approaches to every project or lesson that I do. Here’s the story that I will be telling with the gingerbread man…
– Using one batch of Dough I explained how God formed Adam from the dust of the Earth and how we are all made from the same matter, just as the Gingerbread character is made from the same batch of dough.

– Then as the children cut the Gingerbread character out with a small cutter and added the currents again I explained how we are all made the same way no matter what colour or ethnic group we come from.

– Once the Gingerbread characters are baked, unless you are an expert baker, I defy anyone to find two Gingerbread characters exactly the same, especially if the children have cut them out, thus I explain to them how even if we are made the same way from the same stuff we are also unique and special.

Here’s the timeline that I will be using:

9:15 – 9:30 – Begin mixing ingredients with students
9:30 – 9:45 – Begin using cookie cutters to cut cookies and place on pans
9:45 – 10:00 – Place cookies on pan to bake
10:00 – 10:15 – Clean up all of our mess and continue to cute and place cookies on pans

It’s definitely as detailed as a normal lesson plan would be, but it gives me a basic timeline for class tomorrow. I will post some photos tomorrow afternoon of the finished cookies. I hope each of you has a happy Sunday!
Thanks for reading!
