The easy answer was, I simply LOVE designing stuff!  I'm always looking to improve, as well as keep things current, fresh and interesting.  There must be quite a few teachers who feel the same, as I continue to get requests for "more-more-more" gingerbread goodies. 

I hope you enjoy the newest FREEBIES on the blog today, plus a few old favorites that you might not have been aware of.

Because each one is so different, they make a cute December bulletin board. If you'd like to see my entire glyph collection, click on the link to zip on over to the Glyph Section of my site.

One of the most popular stories read in December is The Gingerbread Man.  I enjoy collecting various versions, with different endings.  glyphs, free glyphs, gingerbread glyph, alphabet games, I spy a letter worksheets, gingerbread worksheets, gingerbread games, gingerbread venn diagrams, venn diagram templates, activities for the gingerbread man, activities for the gingerbread baby, story elements for the gingerbread man, word cards for the ginberbread man, story cards for the gingerbread man, sequencing cards for the gingerbread man, gingerbread crafts, picture cards for the gingerbread manIntroducing story elements by reading a favorite book, is a simple way to grab students' attention.  

Give them a list of things you want them to listen for,  then when they realize where the setting is, they shoot up their hand.  When a new character is introduced, they do it again etc.  This is fun for children and keeps them focussed.

You'll be able to cover quite a few Common Core Standards with The Gingerbread Literacy Packet.  I've included picture cards, a graphic organizer, and a story slider "craftivity"  to help students sequence and retell the story.

Students trace the numbers/letters/shapes.  I encouraged an ABAB pattern using red and green markers.

For that finishing touch allow students to decorate with wiggle eyes, ribbons, rhinestones, buttons and glitter.  I used white puffy paint for the "frosting."  My kiddo's loved that; so easy, but so "Wow!" Click on the link for the Gingerbread Sliders.

By switching things up via a theme, interest remained high.  I often used shapes inside the themed-item, so that I could review yet another standard.  This packet also includes a game.  Click on the link for the Gingerbread Graphing Activities
