Gingerbread Happy and More!
Gingerbread Happy is an innovation of the poem Jack-O Happy. It is a 6 sentence rhyme that young children easily learn to read because of the repetition and easy sight words.
Each month, I introduce a new variation of the poem to my class. As my students become familiar with the poem, they enjoy predicting what the last sentence will reveal! For example, in Caterpillar Happy the last sentence is: But as a butterfly, he is best of all!
Can you predict the last sentence in Gingerbread Happy? I’m sure your kids will figure it out! Hint: “It’s something yummy!”
These EASY books encourage young children to practice early reading skills and reinforce many of the foundational CCSS skills.
