Students working on gingerbread housesStudents in Mrs. Godzich's and Mrs. Hamilton's classes at Martin Road Elementary read the story of "Hansel and Gretel" this month.

The students were able to learn about a fairy tale and learn the origin of gingerbread houses. They were engaged in a non-fiction documentary about how people make gingerbread houses and the cultural traditions around them. They then applied their knowledge to make their own gingerbread houses!

Each student also received a homework packet to complete over break that practices the various story elements of "Hansel and Gretel," as story elements tie in with the most recent Reading Wonders unit for ELA.
