1-2-3 Come Do Some Gingerbread Activities With Me
Looking for some gingerbread-themed activities that practice a variety of standards? You've come to the right place. Hopefully you'll find something useful in today's assortment.
No matter what grade I taught, my students LOVED making glyphs.
They are a quick, easy and fun way to practice listening and following directions.
They also provide a "hard copy" to use as proof that a child does or doesn't.
Completed projects make an adorable bulletin board, as each one will be different.
To practice data collection & analysis, as well as process of elimination, have students try and figure out who made some of the gingerbread glyphs.
Click on the link to zip on over to Diane's Dollar Deals in my TpT shop to have a look:Gingerbread Glyph.
Another Dollar Deal is this 6-piece gingerbread man puzzle. It's a quick, easy and fun way for your kiddos to practice numbers 1-6.
Print off the numbered, "color me" gingerbread pattern, along with the base. Students color, cut him apart, then choose a partner to play the puzzle game.
Children take turns rolling a dice. Whatever number they roll, they glue that piece of their gingerbread man to their worksheet.
You can also skip the gluing part, so that students can continue to play the game at home, or make this a center activity that you can use every year and run off on brown construction paper, laminate & trim.
Are you studying digital and analog time to the hour and half hour? Then "It's Time For Gingerbread" might interest you.
Use the clock cards as flashcards, puzzles & games.
There are also 3 options for an analog gingerbread clock to use as a spinner game, or for whole-group assessing.
If you're going to use the gingerbread man as a clock, have children attach a large and small paperclip with a brass brad.
Simply call out a time. Children manipulate the paperclips to show that time.
I've also included an assessment worksheet, a "Kaboom!" game, plus 2 cover options to make an Itty Bitty "My Telling Time" booklet.
Finally, since 2D shapes is also a standard for us, I designed a gingerbread house craftivity, as well as a gingerbread cookie game and put them in a "Shaping Up With Gingerbread" packet.
For that finishing touch, we sprinkled colorful confetti on the rooftop.
Today's featured FREEBIE also has a gingerbread theme. It's a set of number puzzles. I hope you find them useful.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. My grandchildren are due any minute, so it will be a day filled with crafts and giggles.
Wishing you lots of love-filled moments.
