Can You Catch Gingerbread Boy Freebie
‘Tis the season of giving, and in my classroom, it is also the season that the Gingerbread Boy RETURNS with his sassy behavior! Ginger was enrolled in our class in the beginning of the year, but left for college after only a few weeks! The kids are thrilled to see him visit us again and meet his new friend Gumdrop!
This Freebie is a simple game board, BUT, the kids ask to play it over and over again! Sometimes simple is the BEST!
To play the game: Each child chooses to be a character: Fox, Cow, Dog, or “Me”. A child rolls the dice. If he is the fox, he must roll a 6 to place a button on the fox’s row. If she is the cow, she must roll a 4 to place a button on the cow’s row, and so forth. The first character to fill the row with buttons, wins!
When a student plays individually, he colors a square each time he rolls the dice. He does not need buttons. Example: If he rolls a 4, he colors one square in the cow’s row. If he rolls a 5, he colors one square in the dog’s row. The first row to have all the squares colored… WINS! You could have every child play individually and then graph the results! The kids love to see which character “CAUGHT” Gingerbread Boy the most!
I would LOVE to hear from you! Please share your thoughts with me!
Wishing you a holiday season filled with the laughter of children!
