I was a little sad around the holidays when I began teaching my middle school smarties because I couldn't do any of my favorite activities with some of my Christmas books. I love reading all of the Jan Brett books, and also all of the silly books like The Redneck Night Before Christmas. Then a few years ago I thought.. hey why not? My eleven and twelve year olds love hearing those stories too. So, I started reading The Gingerbread Baby again. I stumbled across The Gingerbread Girl this year.
Have you read this book?
It is totally fun. There is a lot of figurative language in it, so I am planning to use the book in a center to reinforce those skills. A few weeks ago when I was looking ahead to December......
KA- BAM.... KA-POWIE... KA-BOOM.. it hit me!
A GINGERBREAD COOKIE SURVIVAL KIT!!!
I've been working on this for a while and finally finally finally got it finished and uploaded to MY TpT STORE. It is very similar to my Thanksgiving Turkey Survival Kit, but it uses three common Gingerbread books: The Gingerbread Boy, The GIngerbread Baby and The Gingerbread Girl. I am so excited about this product. I'm going to give one away to a lucky blog reader!
