Gingerbread Activities

It's that time of year again! Time for the holidays. I LOVE teaching gingerbread man and doing a literature comparison study of the different versions of the story. I love everything gingerbread, so I am listing a gingerbread numbers around the room activity. It's easy and fun. My kids LOVED the Thanksgiving version, so I created a gingerbread one for those who are doing numbers to 20 around the holidays. The gingerbread people are really cute and similar, so the students have to pay attention to which one has the number on it or they'll write it on the wrong line. Fun sorting/categorizing activity, too. You can get it here on my TPT site. Have fun hunting those gingerbread numbers!!

Turkey Time

Life has been crazy and I'm way behind on blogging about all the great things happening in the Perch, but it's almost Thanksgiving and I've created some really cute things to use with my kindies during the next couple of weeks. We just finished numbers to 10 and are about to jump into those tricky teen numbers, so I created a Thanksgiving version of Numbers Around the Room. You can check it out here:

I also created a fun popcorn word spelling activity using turkeys and feathers. I'm going to be putting this in literacy centers next week. You can check it out here:
Last, but not least, I have created an entire unit to use in literacy and math centers for Thanksgiving. It's called Turkey Time and can be found here:

I'd like to graciously say that all clip art is from www.mycutegraphics.com. Her things are so cute and I just love them. The backgrounds were a Friday Freebie from www.scrappindoodles.com!
