Gingerbread Fun & Freebies

Hi Everyone!

Like a lot of teachers I'm also doing a gingerbread unit. Ours is for the last week of school only but I'm very excited about it cause we all know how much fun it is!

For our Xmas concert next week our class is teaming up with our buddies in Grade 1 and 2 to sing "The Gingerbread Man" by Cookie Monster.

This song is so darn cute and my kids are LOVIN' it!!

This is our poem for the week (click on image).

This cute little math sheet is from Jennifer at Herding Kats in Kindergarten (click on the image). It's perfect for my Grade 1s because we've just begun our addition and subtraction unit to 12. (In BC our entire first term is all about number sense. We delay addition/subtraction for a bit.)

You can also grab this gingerbread fact family activity from Herding Kats in Kindergarten. Thank you, Jennifer!! If you click on the image it will take you to her TpT page (it's free).

I made this sentence scrambler last year. I should really do a set of them but ... so much to do and so little time :)

Have a sweet day!


  1. Love all the freebies! This comes in PERFECT for my gingerbread week! Thanks for sharing the great links! :)

  2. Aww thanks for sharing my gingerbread stuff! I love your sentence scramble - I have a couple little darlings who are stuck on the word "they" right now, so we will be doing this tomorrow!
