Gingerbread Man Activities Teaching Guide/Recommended Timing

There is a teaching guide included to describe how I would teach this unit throughout 3 weeks of school. This is a perfect supplement to the holiday months, but can be taught at any time throughout the school year! It is a great addition to any fairy tale unit. Please note that you need to have various versions of The Gingerbread Man for this to work best.
