If you're planning to add a gingerbread man exchange to your holiday and Christmas activities, this resource is for you! This adorable gingerbread man class book and craft are based on the book, The Gingerbread Man Loose In The School, by Laura Murray. The rhythmic patterns and hilarious tale will delight your students and their exchange partners! The download includes an original, 15-page class book I wrote in the same rhyming pattern as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.

There are 2 book versions included- A ready-made, print and go version and a second version without pictures. Save time by using the Ready Made book with pictures already in the pages or get creative with the Make Your Own version and glue in your own photos of your gingerbread men loose in your school. I have included alternative pages for several exchange scenarios. Whether you are exchanging with a class down the hall or mailing to another state or country, this class book has it covered.

The download also includes a Missing Poster printable plus an editable book cover to add your own class name and a message to the class who receives your book. It even includes gingerbread man stationary to write a letter to the receiving teacher or for students to write to their exchange partners.
