Run, run, as fast as you can!

This week, we had lots of fun with the Gingerbread man in K4!  We read stories online here and here!  We also read Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett. 

We colored our own gingerbread houses with gingerbread babies inside.  IMG_20111207_121437IMG_20111207_121432

The gingerbread house is from HERE!  You can print my gingerbread baby page here:

  We also made a huge, 3-dimensional hallway display of our gingerbread man glyphs.  You can read the glyphs using the key posted by our gingerbread house.  Come check it out soon!













For more gingerbread fun at home, check out my pinterest page!  (Click the pinterest logo below.)  You can decorate your own gingerbread houses and men on many different pages or practice re-reading/retelling the story!

We will be continuing with more gingerbread fun next week since I have so many more fun activities to complete thanks to all the wonderful bloggers out there!  I will be using Deanna Jump’s gingerbread emergent reader from TPT - HERE!  Plus, I have several books I’m waiting to get my hands on at the library -

…and we still need to find time to read…

Whew…I’ll be running as fast as I can to Winter break!  A little over 2 weeks of the holiday craziness to get through.
