Gingerbread Classroom Ideas

27 November 2016


Gingerbread is my favorite December theme and a favorite of my students.  They cannot wait to read a different version of the story and see if they follow the same pattern.   I hope you find some ideas in this post to help you and your students get immersed in all things Gingerbread!


I just created the above Gingerbread Interactive Reading Notebook packet for Teachers Pay Teachers.  You can check it out by clicking the image above!  I am trying to focus more on using an Interactive Reading Notebook with my students, since the Science Notebooks are a hit. 

After we read all our favorite gingerbread books, we have a gingerbread themed afternoon and parents come in.  We make the glyph below and the gingerbread dough. 


The gingerbread glyph activity above is included in my Gingerbread packet on Teachers Pay Teachers.  Also included in this packet is the Gingerbread Ways to Make Ten Craft and so so much more!




We make Gingerbread Dough with parents using this free recipe below.  Just click on the image to download from Google Drive. 


After the kiddos make the gingerbread dough, they use cookie cutters to make fun shapes with the dough. 



My students LOVE this Gingerbread Where I Took the First Bite Gingerbread Graphing Activity.  I utilize Little Debbie Gingerbread Men Cookies for it.  They are nice and big!  They also work wonderfully for the "What would happen if the Gingerbread Man gets wet?" experiment (see the interactive notebook packet).



Here are a few of my favorite gingerbread themed read alouds.  You can click through the affiliate links below to check them out on Amazon. 




Here is another freebie for you!  Here are some gingerbread themed holiday homework passes.

Thanks for stopping by!  Feel free to pin!
