You Asked For More... So Here's Gingerbread Galore!
Are you doing a gingerbread theme for December and need some activities that fit your report card standards? You’ve come to the right place!
I just finished making some adorable alphabet cards using some of my favorite clipart from Laura Strickland.
I’ve included both upper and lowercase letters as well as a blank set for you to program with whatever else you can think up, like equations, or students’ names.
There’s also a 3-page tip list of what else to do with the cards including games, so I’ve included “Kaboom” bomb cards as well, plus covers so that your students can also make Itty Bitty Alphabet Booklets too.

Venn diagrams are a wonderful way for students to compare and contrast a variety of things.
By having students fill out a Venn diagram, they can easily see the similarities and differences in the stories, as well as with characters.
It’s also fun for them to compare and contrast themselves to the gingerbread man. Click on the link to view/download the 4 Gingerbread Venn diagrams.
I always liked to have a little surprise sitting on my students’ desks when they came in, in the morning, or something to staple to their paper if they completed their work or stayed on task.
These 4 different gingerbread bookmarks are great incentives to help motivate your students.

Finally, as we can all empathize, teaching grammar can be a bit tedious. Spice things up by going on a “Gingerbread Hunt!”
Choose 10 of the 18 Gingerbread Sentence cards and scatter them around the room. Number the backs with a dry erase marker and attach a magnet so students can sequence them on the white board, or put them in your pocket chart.
I’ve provided a numbered game paper for students to rewrite the sentences correctly, including beginning capital letters and ending punctuation marks.
How sweet is that? I’m sure your students will enjoy it more than the “same old-same old.”
When everyone is done, choose students to correct the laminated cards with a red dry erase marker, and have them self-correct their own gingerbread paper.
I’ve included several different certificates of praise that they can choose from, for a job well done! Click on the link to view/download Gingerbread Sentences.
