Take your students on an adventure to remember by making gingerbread men and having them come alive. Your students will be taken on a reading and writing adventure that will have them learning, problem solving and connecting to the well-loved classic story. You'll be amazed at what a little *magic* can do for your readers and writers. This is by far my favorite memory each year!

Make this a simple process with everything you need to pull it together here in this unit. Balanced Literacy components are all found including activities and resources, parent letters, cooperating teacher letters, emergent readers, retelling props, technology integration and more! Lots of photos to help you along the way!
