’Tis the season for diversity! The are many holiday celebrations in the month of December, so to keep my kids all on the same page, Gingerbread Boy comes to the rescue! There is a plethora of Gingerbread stories to read, compare, and contrast. Plus, my kids love taking home a GIANT GINGERBREAD MAN as their December calendar. Parents adore displaying the GIANT COOKIE and reviewing numbers, days of the week, and months.
All children depend on structure and routine to make sense of their world. Each month my students can count on a new calendar coming home to share with family. They can't wait to see what the next month's calendar will be! Do you know what January will be?
This is a FUN and educational activity for both students and parents! I've included a parent letter explaining the skills to review daily with their children.
To add to the GINGERBREAD MAN Theme, I’ve created calendar markers and the DECEMBER heading. Your class WALL calendar will be adorable and a snap for you to put up! “Run, run, as fast as you can and download the 2016 December calendar! Your students and parents will eat it up!
