Gingerbread Week!

Merry Christmas Eve Eve! I've been such a slacker pants lately on my blogging. I must do better!  So, I wanted to pop in today to share with you some of the things we did during our Gingerbread week! 

We made Gingerbread boys and girls and imagined we were the real gingerbread boy or girl and wrote about what we would do. I think the little sweetie below has a great idea!!! :)

We ate some yummy gingerbread cookies for snack and made a quick little graph to see which part we bit first. The arm was apparently the tastiest part to bite first! HA This idea came from Deanna's Gingerbread unit.
I told my students that I just couldn't understand why the Gingerbread man just didn't swim across the river instead of hitching a ride on the fox's back. So we decided to do a little experiment to see what would happen if the gingerbread man tried to cross the river. They were very clever with their predictions! :) I found this great recording sheet here

We read several different versions this week. Students wrote which version was their favorite and had to explain why. I loved this little sweetie's thinking! :)
We compared and contrast the boy version of the story to the girl version.

Run, run as fast as you can to check out my little Gingerbread Shenanigans pack if you like the activities you see here. I'm having a flash sale and you can snatch this fun little pack up for $1.00!
The craft, venn diagram, and favorite version writing paper are all included plus more! :)
