Week 1: Read the traditional story of The Gingerbread Man. There are so many versions of this book! Any one will work. Read The Gingerbread Boy and The Gingerbread Girl. Sequence the stories using sequencing activities from Deanna Jump's fantastic Gingerbread Man Math and Literacy Fun Unit.
Week 2: Read non-traditional versions of the story including The Gingerbread Ninja, The Gingerbread Pirates, The Gingerbread Bear, The Gingerbread Baby, and The Gingerbread Girl Goes Animal Crackers. Have your students compare and contrast the different stories. Ask them to name their favorite story and tell why it is their favorite.
