Gingerbread Decorating Fun ~ With Freebie!

Hello friends! While getting ready for Christmas, my teaching partner and I have decided to do gingerbread all the way until Christmas break. This is due in part to deck the halls that my school has started doing each year. Each year we work together to decorate our hallways based on a Christmas book. Our hallway theme this year is gingerbread men so basically all the finished products in the classroom will find its way to our hallway for deck the halls.

Here is what I have created for my math and literacy centers to go along with our theme:



Here are a few pictures of these set up in stations in my room. Most were put in baggies and baskets so they can be easily cleaned up.

The Gumdrop Number Sequencing is my freebie to you to use for sequencing numbers to 20. Enjoy!
A wonderful parent bought every student in my class a gingerbread man to decorate. Oh my word, we had so much fun with this!
 We decided that the one below was the most likely to run away.
This week each student is going to be given a cut out of a gingerbread man and students are going to decide which part {head, leg, arm} they are going to bite off first. They will cut that part off of their gingerbread man and then we are going to write about it and do a data collection and graphing activity. Afterwards we are going to eat a gingerbread cookie.
