Sweet Treats~Gingerbread Friends!

What a fun week we had incorporating different tales of the Gingerbread Man. We used these stories to integrate all of our learning this week in math, writing, reading, science, and art.

After reading The Gingerbread Girl and The Gingerbread Boy we did a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting the two stories. They then made the girl or boy. They had a lot of fun decorating these characters.

After reading The Gingerbread Baby and Gingerbread Mouse we made these cute gingerbread houses. In each of these stories the characters found a special gingerbread house to live in.

After reading all the different gingerbread tales the students created their own Gingerbread Story. They used a gingerbread friend to run away on each page. They got to pick who they had the gingerbread man run from and also how they wanted their to story end.

We played two different math games using our Gingerbread Friends. One of the games was fact families. They had to make 2 addition and 2 subtraction facts using 3 numbers in a “family”.

The other game we played was “Race to the Gingerbread House” using a number line and recording our facts as we moved from 0-20. They had to roll a die and record their problems as they moved on the number line. They had a lot of fun playing this game.

All of our centers this week were gingerbread themed. Here are a few of them that we did. They used letter tiles to make the word GINGERBREAD then broke those letter tiles apart to see how many words they could build. They had gingerbread cards and they picked 2 cards and wrote number sentences adding them together. Another center was sorting math facts on the gingerbread men and matching them to the correct gingerbread house. They listened to The Gingerbread Man at the listening center and made a story map of who? where? what happened? and how the problem what solved.
