Incorporate a brain break into your ELA block, story time, or anytime your students need to stretch and refocus. Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett is a wonderful story in which Gingerbread Baby is lonely and looking for new friends. Meanwhile, Mattie, the boy who made him, is planning a surprise for him. Your students can act out both parts of the story with 3 pages of yoga poses.
The Boardmaker pictures can be easily displayed on an interactive white board or document camera and are appropriate and accessible for students of all abilities and multiple grade levels.
Do this fun activity following a read aloud of this book or, if your students/children are familiar with this story, do it as a quick brain break and sequence review.
