This year we started a German Club. It's been fun (and definitely interesting) going through the process of forming a club and holding events.
To celebrate the holidays, we put together and decorated ginger bread houses. I got pre-made sets from Target and Harris Teeter. They were really nice in that they had all the supplies - walls, frosting, candy decorations, all of it - but we did have a few problems with the ginger bread breaking. One of the houses had a broken piece when they opened it and some of the other students accidentally broke some of their pieces during construction :(
The kids did have fun though (even with the broken pieces). We put together the houses today and we're storing them in our office freezer over night - tomorrow I'll have other teachers judge them for stability, appearance and creativity. If you're interested in the rating sheet we'll be using, just click here.
Loved this event - can't wait to see what else the German Club does this year and can't wait to do this event again next year :)
