Product Description
This comparative book study was created to accompany the books The Gingerbread Man as retold by Karen Lee Schmidt and Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett. (If you do not own Schmidt's version of the tale, any traditional retelling should fit well with the activities included.) All the activities are designed to help students read for understanding, compare and contrast, and think critically about the texts.

The following activities are included:

Story Maps: Students will determine the characters, setting, problem, and solution in each story. This could be completed as a whole group activity, as a literacy center, independently, or as partner work.

Summary Sheets: Students will demonstrate understanding of key ideas and details as they summarize The Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Baby. A blank summary organizer is also included for use with additional texts.

Comprehension Strips: Comprehension strips allow students to practice close reading as they return to the text to find key information and answer specific questions. They are a fun alternative to a traditional question and answer worksheet and can be used as an individual or partner literacy center, or as a whole class activity when displayed under a document camera. Twelve comprehension strips for Gingerbread Baby and recording sheets are included.

Character Trait Graphic Organizers and Writing Prompts: Students will create bubble maps listing character traits for the Fox and the Gingerbread Man from The Gingerbread Man and the Gingerbread Baby and Matti from Gingerbread Baby. Optional writing prompts asking students to explain their choices with evidence from the text are also included.

Venn Diagrams: Students will compare and contrast the two stories using lined Venn Diagrams. The Venn Diagram can also be used for reference when students respond to the writing prompt comparing the two stories. A blank copy is provided for use with additional texts.

Compare and Contrast Response Paper: Students will respond to a writing prompt comparing and contrasting The Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Baby. A blank prompt is provided for use with additional texts.

Gingerbread Roll and Spell: These dice games can be used with any word list or word wall and are perfect for literacy center use.

Gingerbread Verb Tenses: A verb tense circle, cut, and paste activity inspired by the books The Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Baby.

*Multiple recording sheet options are provided for each activity. Choose those that nest fit the needs of your students.
