Gingerbread Activities

We did a great big unit on the Gingerbread Man. I am just now getting around to posting pictures! 

We spent the week reading Gingerbread Man stories and comparing them.
Then, we tied several ELA standards in, such as adjectives, writing how-to pieces, story elements, etc.

After reading and comparing many of these stories all week, here are a few of the pictures I grabbed.

We then carried our adjective lesson over to Gingerbread houses.
