We had a lot of fun reading the many different renditions of the “Gingerbread Man”. We talked about how the stories we different from one another as well as story elements that were the same. Your student also enjoyed decorating and writing about gingerbread people, counting gingerbread cookies in ten frames and matching them with the corresponding, practiced positional words. We even got to eat our very own gingerbread cookie! Please see picture attachments.
