This 29 page download will get your kiddos working on those Common Core Standards in a fun and enjoyable way! If you have downloaded my ‘mystery box’ activity, you know about the "special box" my students take home nightly. This is another activity I include in our class box around the holidays.
Students will take home a Gingerbread Man themed class book and a Gingerbread Man to read with (note: I use a stuffed Gingerbread Man in my room and have linked in this download where you can buy your own, or if you would rather not purchase one, included in this download is a printable "flat gingerbread man" that your students could read to). If you would rather not send home this activity, this activity would also work great as a Literacy Station reading center.
Students will read a book to the Gingerbread Man, and then write about and draw a picture about their favorite part in the class book. The next school day, students will share their work with the class. This is an activity which encourages CCSS speaking and listening, as well as reading and writing. I have also created a Gingerbread themed word game to include in your own class “special box” or for a fun word work center in your classroom. In this download you will find:
*Adventures In Reading With The Gingerbread Man Book Cover (one with full color background and one with a black and white background)
*A direction page to include in the front of the class book for families to assist children in completing the activity
*3 different student recording pages with various lines for writing and a spot for a picture (depending on your students' needs)
*A Gingerbread High Frequency Word Game which includes 104 high frequency word cards and several direction cards to keep the game fun and engaging
*A Gingerbread word game direction page to send home to families
Thanks so much for looking, and should you download this product, I’d so appreciate it if you would take a moment to rate it. Thank you!
