Since 2D shapes
and spatial directions
are a Common Core Standard
, I decided to design a quick, easy and fun emergent reader
, with a gingerbread
the simple sentences, add end punctuation, trace and write
the spatial direction words (above, under, beside, left, right, between)
and then color, cut and glue
the gingerbread cookie to the appropriate place.
The cookies are in 2D shapes
When everyone is done, read as a whole group to cover concepts of print.
I've also included a "Where's the Gingerbread Man?" game
to further reinforce spatial directions.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your little ones enjoy running with the gingerbread man.
