Help your students practice early literacy skills story retelling, word work, and writing using a fun gingerbread theme. This free packet includes a template for creating a paper bag gingerbread house. This house can be used to sequence and retell the story, "Gingerbread Baby" by Jan Brett. Also included in the packet is a word work activity for students in the beginning stage of word work (letter name-alphabetic stage). Students can use gingerbread houses to sort picture cards into short a word families. You will also find a post reading activity and journal writing cards. The writing prompts can be used for students who are writing with pictures or with words. You can find more information on how I used this packet on my blog (http://ready-set-read.com).
