This is a simple project that you can have students complete in the month of December, or you may even send it home over Winter Break. Encourage students to read a book. You can set the guidelines. (My school used AR, so I had students choose an AR fiction book on their level.) Then, have them complete a Gingerbread character graphic organizer. Finally, have them decorate a Gingerbread Man.

Option 1:
Have students trace the Gingerbread Man on light brown construction paper, cardboard, or sandpaper. Then, have them take home and decorate. Note: I found a pack of 20 paper sized sheets of sandpaper at Lowes.

Option 2 (EASY!):
If you are short on time, just print the pages, and have students color with crayons, markers, or colored pencils. Option 2 can be completed in class or at home.

Display the Gingerbread Men on a bulletin board or in your window. Use the included tags to tell the title, author, character, and student’s name.

Note about the Graphic Organizers: I included 5 different simple character graphic organizers. They are based on the Common Core standards for grades 2-5. I did not include the standards on the organizers so you can pick and choose the one that is best for you and your students.
