Simply run the fox pattern off on orange or brown construction paper.
Students trim & add a few highlights with crayons.

I purposely did not number the pages, so you can check comprehension, when students sequence the story.

Besides the black & white patterns,  I’ve also included colorful ones, so that you can quickly & easily make an example to share.

Since there are two versions of the fairy tale,  I’ve also included page options with both endings of the story, as well as a gingerbread man pattern, to use as an extra manipulative.

My students absolutely love this "finishing touch", which really adds to the "way cool" cuteness factor.

To check comprehension & further reinforce the sequence of the story, older students can explain “What Happened?” on the writing prompt worksheet.

When everyone's  done, have children pick a partner and take turns telling the story of “The Gingerbread Man” to each other.
We sometimes do this sort of thing with our older reading buddies.
