Here are instructions for how to put together a fun Gingerbread Unit for your students and parents. While you are preparing a class story in school together, students are also going through the writing process at home with the guidance of their parents. I have that Gingerbread Planning Template available for free on another listing. The handouts are to be given to parents before the unit begins. It truly is a special time for people to see their children become authors and for the kiddos to be able to share their writing with others at a sweet, cozy event. Class book cover included!
