GINGERBREAD MAN

LITERACY

READING FIRST NAMES

Using the pocket chart we played "Sweet Gingerbread Men Sitting on a Tray" to review reading our names.
Pre-program gingerbread man shapes with each child's name. Laminate and put a small piece of magnet tape on the back. Recite the poem, "Sweet gingerbread men sitting on a tray. _______ jumped up and ran away." Place the child's name on the pocket chart in the blank. Have child come and identify the gingerbread man with the same name and have it "run away." Same poem can be used with numbers and sight words. Download the poem and clip art here.

PUZZLE

These three children worked hard on putting this gingerbread puzzle together. It was difficult since we had no picture to go by. They stuck with it and finally completed the puzzle. I was impressed!

SCIENCE


After reading the Gingerbread Man we wondered what does happen to a cookie when it gets wet so we decided to make an experiemnt. We first talked about what we thought would happen and then dropped a cookie (not a gingerbread shaped cookie but it was a ginger snap). We concluded our experiment by charting the results.

ART

SHAPE GINGERBREAD MAN (OR GIRL)

Each child chose a variety of shapes (I had some foam shapes and cut out others) to decorate his gingerbread man shape. The writing prompt says how many circles, squares, rectangles, and triangles were used. the children wrote the numbers in each blank.


GINGERBREAD MAN TREE

We made our own gingerbread men using a variety of things: M&M's, sequins, stickers, glitter, and bingo dobbers.

PINTEREST FAIL?

The kids made and decorated a gingerbread house. Not bad for 4 year olds. Well it tastes delicious.
