Huge Gingerbread Man Resources and Activities

Huge Gingerbread Man Resources and Activities

30 pages of fun … To support the topic of the Gingerbread Man! My class adore this story, so I created Gingerbread Man themed resources for them to use to support my teaching and their learning. In this pack you will find… Gingerbread Man speech bubbles to encourage creative writing (2 versions included). Lined paper with a Gingerbread Man border for children to write on (my class wrote their own versions of the story!). Numbers on Gingerbread Men (I use these as flash cards, ask the children to place them into number order, daily interventions, etc). Cut and stick the gingerbread men into number order activity sheet (two versions: numbers 1-10 and numbers 11-20). Design your own Gingerbread Man sheet. Lovely Gingerbread Man themed bunting to decorate your classroom (mine is in my role play area and my writing area!). Pre writing trace the Gingerbread Man’s tracks sheet to develop fine motor skills, pencil grip and control. Number lines (two versions: numbers 1-10 and numbers 1-20). 56 Gingerbread men addition cards (completely differentiated to target a range of mathematical abilities from addition with numbers under 5 to addition with numbers over 20). I hope your class enjoy these resources as much as mine did! The Teacher Traveller
