Run Run As Fast As You Can! Hop On Board And Make A Gingerbread Man.
The Gingerbread Art and Activity Book has 108 pages of heartwarming arts & crafts + activities that will dazzle and delight.
Some full color pictures, + copy-ready patterns and step-by-step directions for each project are included.
These projects all involve many of your report card standards, like the "Pocket Pal" (pictured on the left.)
If you look closely you can see that the face of the gingerbread is made out of construction paper + 1/2 of a paper plate, which makes a pocket that contains colored shapes, and skip counting folded number strips + anything else you may want to review that day.
The gingerbread "Story Slider" has students sequence the Gingerbread tale to retell the story and makes a nice Daily 5 activity.
The gingerbread clock is an easy and different way to reinforce telling time with your students.
The gingerbread paper chain is a wonderful way to review whatever color pattern you choose, as well as have students count down the days to Christmas, as they tear off a link each day.
Children are learning and reinforcing much-needed math, writing, and science concepts while enjoying art that has a gingerbread theme. It was one of my Young Fives favorites.
As you can see, many of these make terrific manipulatives, or great keepsakes for parents. You can use them as gifts, bulletin boards, hallway and classroom decorations or for portfolios.
Some of the projects include songs and poems to reinforce those concepts as well.
