It's the most wonderful time of the year 🙂 I just LOVE all the fun that December brings. My most FAVORITE unit of the year to teach is my Gingerbread one! Today I am linking up with
For their Thematic Thursday which is all about Gingerbread FUN!! Take a look at what books I include, some fun activities and links to some cute crafts!
There are SOO many different versions of this story! The 3 I have shown above a just a few. I spend a whole week on this unit so I use 5 different stories. We read a different one each day and then charts them all so students can see how the books are similar and different. I also have my students pick their 2 favorites and create a graphic organizer.
This year I created a whole literacy unit to go along with these books
In this unit I have created pictures for students to retell the story
Graphic Organizers to use with any of the books
Plus 4 literacy centers all with the Gingerbread Theme
These will be used next week in my classroom so I don't have many pics just yet but, check back next week to see these centers in action!
There are SOOO many ideas out there. Just Google it and you will be blown away! One activity I like to do with my kids is Fingerprint Gingerbread
They turn out cute and are not too messy 😉 I also order some gingerbread ornaments from Oriental Trading for my students to make for parent gifts
I also have a freebie posted in my TPT shop for a Gingerbread Write The Room
