Use this HUGE Gingerbread-themed pack for the weeks leading up to your holiday break. I'm sure we will all be reading a version or two of The Gingerbread Man story- so why not have a whole unit to go along with it? This pack could easily stretch 2 whole weeks in a Kindergarten or First Grade classroom. The activities are so much fun- but also totally Common Core aligned! The activities are differentiated for a variety of learners and are designed to work perfectly as either whole-group activities, centers, or partner work. Many of the activities could even be done as quiet independent work. Your students (and you!) will have so much fun with these festive games, centers and activities! Enjoy! :)
