Gingerbread Man: A Christmas Book Inspired Craft

I’m joining in with a few of my friends to bring you a collection of holiday themed books and some inspired crafts and activities.

December is always an exciting time of year, full of joy and wonder for young children.  To capture this, I want to share some gingerbread activities with you!

The Gingerbread Man
(You can pick up a copy on Amazon)

Here is my Gingerbread Math and Language Arts Unit that I LOVE using with my class!


I am just teaching my students how to "clap" syllables.  They LOVE using this center as they practice sorting the pictures by the number of syllables that they hear.


We are practicing counting and matching it with the number.  I have some advanced students that are able to actually read the number word!  This activity allows me differentiate among my learners.


The students have the MOST fun making the gingerbread craft!!! I let them pick if they want to make the boy or girl!



I found these gingerbread cookies at my local Albertons grocery store!  I want to have them decorated as a boy and girl, and then we can all eat a piece after we read the story!
