This is an emergent reader book, by Sara Ipatenco, that encourages children to recognize simple sight words such as “and,” “the,” “away” and “ran.” The 10-page book is about a gingerbread boy who runs away from things such as Santa, an elf, a dog, a boy and a girl. The story ends with the gingerbread man getting caught by a reindeer. It uses repeated text and encourages children to use the pictures to figure out unknown words. It's great for phonics practice,too! Simply cut the pages apart and staple them together. I’ve included a black and white version that students can color themselves and a color version that you can print, laminate and use as a classroom book! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!!
