Don't need all that, but are looking for a "sequencing" The Gingerbread Man activity?
Then you'll like The Gingerbread Man Story Wheel.
It comes in a full color version, so you can use it as a center activity, as well as black and white, so students can make their own.
I've also included a puzzle version, for another center activity. Both the wheel and puzzle have the two different ending options.
One where the fox eats the gingerbread man, the other where he escapes and continues to run.
The featured FREEBIE today is a sweet, keepsake ornament.
The snowmen were made from a child's fingerprints. I've included a poem-note as well:
"If you look a little closer you will see,
that these are very special snowmen made with TLC.
Their bodies are my fingerprints, so that you can recall
Christmas ______ when my hand was very small."
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
With a big family to buy for, I'm out the door for the rest of the day, shopping 'til I indeed drop. Wishing you a happy day.
