Down came the turkeys and up went the gingerbread friends...


Down came the turkeys only to be replaced by all things Gingerbread. I have been reading different versions and my students can't get enough of these stories. Amazon is in love with this teacher! They are loving these stories. When I lead up to the fox I change my voice, it sounds slow and sweet and the kids get so tense. It is so cute to watch their faces because they know what is coming. They always clap at the end! I am not sure who is having more fun with this. I still have to hit some important standards before we go on winter break and I  will be working hard to get some projects completed too! 
Report cards are done and now conferences are ahead of me. It never stops... so I will run, run as fast as I can. I better finish my presentation for the Blog Expo coming up too!

Woops, grab this little activity here.

Thanks for the freebie. I LOVE the Gingerbread theme! Besides the Gingerbread Baby, I have another book where he does not get eaten. I love the look on the kid's faces because its not what they're expecting!

Thanks for sharing - perfect for teen numbers lessons this month!

We just finished our gingerbread unit Friday - and my kiddos picked "The Gingerbread Girl" as their favorite - cute story.

This is going to be really great practice for them- plus, it's really cute! I am guessing that they are supposed to put the numbers in order, right?
Thanks for the freebie!

Fran,
I am behind schedule on my Gingerbread Man stories so this will be perfect when we get to them. Thanks!
Why is it the kids have such a hard time with the TEEN numbers? ;-)

Ms. Cheri said...

Fran,

Once again you hit the nail on the head. Perfect! Thank you so much.

TFS! We always struggle with the teen numbers. This will be a great math station for next week.

Thank you, Fran! I made a write-the-room activity with descriptive cookie words. My kinders are having a ton of fun with the gingerbread theme!
