How Time Flies

This school year is flying by!  It seems like it was just Halloween, and now Thanksgiving is over.  I have to say I am thouroughly enjoying this crop of kiddos this year, and while I really love being home with my own children, I am anxious to get back into the classroom on Monday!

I have been thinking ahead to holiday activities, and whipped up an activity pack for the folk tale The Gingerbread Man.  This story has so many possibilities...I included just a few in my pack.  Even though so much more can be done, I have so many other projects to get going, songs to teach for our Winter program, etc. and only a few weeks until break!  GAH!  {At least report cards and conferences are over.}  Check it out here.  It includes: sequencing cards, a follow-up sequencing activity for centers, a writing prompt, and two craftivities!  WOOHOO!

Here is one of the books I will be reading to kick off the gingerbread man chase:

And I plan on sharing this video:

I hope you enjoy my new activity pack!  I know my students will.  I can't wait to see how excited they are about Christmas and the holidays.  ;)

What special activities do you do along with this folk tale?
