Gingerbread Man Common Core Literacy Unit

Whew!  I am so out of breath from all of that running!  Are you looking for the Gingerbread Man?  Well, I've got him right here!  I ran & ran as fast as I could!  And I caught him, I caught him!  I knew that I would!  Ok, I'm sorry for that :)  Did I mention that Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite authors? 

Anyway, I have a serious case of Gingerbreadman-Itis.  So watch out!  It might be contagious! :) 

I am loving this time off but I am also looking forward to the school year.  I know that my kids will love what I have in store!  I made this HUGE ELA unit.  It's so big I decided to go to the library to print it all.  I paid 5 cents per page (over 100 pages!) and I put it all in a big binder along with the "stuff" to go with it. 

My Binder

 Story Time:
 These are the stories that I have lined up for the week:
Day 1:  The Gingerbread Man by Karen Schmidt
Day 2:  The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School by Laura Murray
Day 3:  The Gingerbread Girl by Lisa Campbell Ernst
Day 4:  Maisy Makes Gingerbread by Lucy Cousins
Can you see where I'm going with this one? :)
Circle Time:
I made a little Gingerbread Man doll to pass around during, "Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar?"  There's a link to the pattern in the unit.  I bought the supplies to make it from my local fabric store for about $5.  I also plan to make a Gingerbread Girl.
Dramatic Play:
Do you think this will help my little ones with retelling the story? 
Here's a clue, the answer is Yes! 
This apron is from Oriental Trading.
Playdough Center:
Gingerbread Letter Mats from A-Z

There's a link to a really cute recipe for Gingerbread Playdough.  I haven't tried it yet but that's what I plan to use. 

That's just a sample of what I've been up to. 
If you like what you see, or if you've caught my Gingerbreadman-Itis :),
You can buy my Gingerbread Man Literacy Unit on TPT.  You may also want to look at my Gingerbread Man Math Unit.  Here are the links:
