Baby, Baby….Gingerbread Baby

Run, run, as fast as you can!
You can’t catch me
Cuz I’m Super Woman!

I can jog in place, do jumping jacks, and run in circles while doing my P-90X now! Quite a change from this summer.

And the Holiday season is coming! Don’t believe me? Step into Target! Geesh, it would be nice to enjoy one season at a time, wouldn’t it? But I’ve given in and am preparing for Christmas season myself. I’ve already ordered and received my Christmas cards. Seriously.
Every December I do some kind of Gingerbread Man unit at school. This unit can be used for all of my students grades K-5 and is holiday “themed” without being religious. Usually I use a classic story. I’ve also used The Musubi Man, and Stop that Pickle. One of my favorite versions is Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett because of the illustrations. The drawings are amazingly detailed and include past and future events on the sides of the page so that you have a story occurring before your eyes! Additionally, there are free online resources from the author herself! You can get free characters from the story here and can watch the author reading the story here.

Today I added to my materials by picking these up at Dollar Tree. I figure I can do a nice basic concepts lesson of “inside, under, over, around, next to” using these cute items.

Check out the new, improved, and completely updated book companion that I’ve created! It is great for all language levels (PK-5th+ as well as articulation)!

  2. Cute! I just bought some clipart for “Gingerbread Pirates.” I do a few variations of the Gingerbread Man in December as well.
