Reading is sweet, isn't it? For the winter holidays, we create a sweet shop decorating theme in our library, and the best part are the paper cookies that students decorate to look like a book character.
This PDF printable freebie has the student instructions for reading a book over Thanksgiving break, then decorating the paper gingerbread person on the reverse side to look like a character from the book.
I copy this onto card stock or heavier paper so that students can color, paint, or even glue items on to the gingerbread character.
After the Thanksgiving break, cute and colorful creations will come pouring into your school library!
