While I'm not in any hurry for Thanksgiving week to pass, I am looking ahead to next week...the first week in December! We're kicking off the month of December with a fun-filled week dedicated to the Gingerbread Man. We'll be reading the original story and throwing in some other versions along the way. Our plans include Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett, Gingerbread Girl by Lisa Campbell Ernst, and Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett. We'll be comparing and contrasting the stories and making a class pictograph of our favorite book at the end of the week.
We'll also be using the Gingerbread Man Math Mini-Unit
during our Math block.
We'll be getting hands-on while working in pairs to complete Gingerbread Man Measurement to kick things off.
We'll also be completing some Gingerbread Man-themed Math Centers this week.
Additionally, I have planned to use some no-prep Math materials, which are also included in this mini-unit. I don't know about you, but I don't want to spend my whole break preparing for the upcoming week! ;)
I just can't think of anything better to kick-off Thanksgiving Break than a giveaway for my teacher friends! Would you like to win my Gingerbread Man Math Mini-Unit?
