“Gingerheads” are a quick, easy and fun craftivity with a variety of game options.

Make a set for an independent math center, so students can practice 2D shapes

The bows, with the shape word in the center, are matched to the appropriate "gingerhead".

Place a bow on the top to make a girl, use them as a bow tie for a boy.

Make an extra set; cut them in half, and use as puzzles. Interesting way to review symmetry too.

Play 4-Corner FREEZE! Which helps practice a variety of life skills, like listening and following directions, as well as the 2D shape vocabulary, plus recognition, and counting backwards from 10 to 0.

My kiddos absolutely LOVE this game.

Easy-peasy for me, and only takes a few minutes, so it’s perfect for the end of the day.

You can also use the gingerheads as big flashcards. Hold one up. Children call out what shape it is, along with its attributes, like number of vertices.

Play “Who’s Missing?” Display the smaller set on a wall. After children leave, take one away. In the morning, children guess which one is missing.

Besides the 5 games, I’ve also included a 2-on-a-one-page template, so children can pick their favorite and create their own gingerhead.

I used white puffy paint for the trim.

It looks so real, and adds that finishing touch.

Children name their gingerhead, write what shape it is, along with its attributes on the back.

There’s a graphing extension as well, plus directions for the games.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me. I hope your students enjoy playing with the gingerheads as much as mine do. Wishing you a December filled with lots of giggles.
