1-2-3 Come Do Some More Gingerbread Activities With Me
I decided to design some easy readers that cover a variety of standards using a gingerbread theme.
I hope you'll enjoy the Let's Count Gingerbread packet. Students trace and write the number; color it, and circle it in the sequence. They also add end punctuation to the sentences.
I've included 2 different sets of gingerbread number cards to 20, with a 2-page tip list of all sorts of things you can do with them, including games like Kaboom; + several "trace & write the number" worksheets, as well as a few "What's Missing?" activities and a traceable bookmark you can use as an assessment tool.
When students have completed the packet, you can give them a certificate of praise. Click on the link to view/download the Let's Count Gingerbread packet.
One of my most downloaded easy-readers are the 10-Frame booklets, so I wanted to make one for gingerbread. Click on the link to grab the 1-2-3 Count Gingerbread With Me one.
Finally, one of my Y5's favorite gingerbread activities started with me giving them a gingerbread cookie.
If you're not a baker (I am not; the 1st time I attempted brownies, my son said they tasted like hockey pucks(!) and I'm wondering when he bit into one of those?) you can buy a box of Keebler gingerbread cookies or another brand. They always have them in the grocery stories in December.
Any hoo, I told my students to take only 1 bite and then to freeze. We graphed who bit off what part of the gingerbread.
In the 10 years I taught Y5's, every year the head was bit off the most, and my quieter students almost always bit off an arm. I wonder if one can draw any conclusions from these experiments?
If you'd like to do this with your kiddo's I included a graph of the parts, as well as a graph of who does and doesn't like gingerbread.
These can be found in the Our Gingerbread Class Book packet. Students fill in their name and what part of the gingerbread they bit off first and then draw a picture. Collect the pages, collate and make a class book.
Thanks for visiting today. Feel free to PIN away. I design and blog daily so after you finish running as fast as you can, doing a zillion things, I hope you'll have time to pop by tomorrow for the newest FREEBIES.
