Kids LOVE the gingerbread man so obviously, it makes complete sense to spend at least a week incorporating it into your students’ learning during the month of December.
But, it sure adds an element of fun and brings their writing to life.
I love keeping the houses simple, with graham crackers, colorful candy and icing.
Remind them to use sequencing words like first, next, last, finally…etc. We usually use crayons, colored pencils, watercolor paints or markers.
Then have them provide a sense of closure at the end. If using watercolors, I recommend printing on white card stock.Then I enjoy watching their creativity as they come up with their designs and get to work.You can allow them to create their own, or you can have them work in groups for this delicious STEM activity.These prompts would be perfect after reading that fun holiday story. I recommend pairing the “How to Catch the Gingerbread Man” prompt with your favorite version of “The Gingerbread Man” or with the book “Catch That Cookie.” This set is not only filled with tons of Christmas prompts.There are also craftivities for January and February to help keep your students writing all season long.Just print the topper and writing pages you need and you are ready to go. This craftivity is a free sample of my Winter Writing Craftivities.Each of these craftivities comes with 3 different styles of writing lines, so that you can choose the line style that work best for your writers.Remind them to carefully think about each of the important steps they are taking so that they can write about it after.3 cups powdered sugar 1 tbs light corn syrup 2 tbs milk (food coloring if desired) If needed, add a little more milk or powdered sugar to reach your desired consistency.
