I use this unit during our Science and Social Studies time about 2-3 weeks prior to Christmas break. For my Reading Workshop time I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to read and compare all of the different Gingerbread Man Stories. There are so many of them out there and I have loved everyone that I can get my hands on. Each day the students and I read a new book and complete a story map (which is a FREE download at the end of this post). At the end of the 2-3 week time period that this takes, we compare all of the stories to each other. Then we complete a Gingerbread Man Reader's Theater and decorate our very own Gingerbread Man cookies.
This is an extension of all our Gingerbread fun that gives some rhyming practice. It is an interactive reader, a rhyming center, and a sort activity.
