Kindergartners at Islip Terrace’s Ruth C. Kinney Elementary School recently enjoyed reading the story of “The Gingerbread Man,” and continued the tale’s theme by making a list of ingredients for cinnamon ornaments. Teachers Barbara Whelan and Kim Tsirigotis helped the students to follow the recipe and create the ornaments.
“The children used their senses to smell the cinnamon and feel the sticky and squishy dough,” said Whelan. “They then used cookie cutters to shape different types of ornaments, including gingerbread men, trees, stars, stockings, and snowmen.”
