I have used some of the ideas to create my own resources which I will share with you for free here.
We have made our own Ginger Bread Man Class book using this template. Each child was given a page to write his or her name on and then decorate the gingerbread man. I have stapled the altogether and will put it in the book corner.
We talked about how you could stop the gingerbread man from running away and created this little book showing our techniques. They will keep them in their daily 5 reading bags to practise reading.
I modelled this activity with the class first using this big we made.
I printed these templates out for the children to use while they retell the story to each other.
Each day we share a poem together which the children can take home in their poem books. This is the one (below) for Monday which I loved as it ties in with our weeks theme. Normally I just use a selection of nursery rhymes for the week. I have a class poem book in which I stick a copy of each days poem as well. The children can read it and I will start to invite some children to colour a page in each day and sign it.
For maths, we used the Roll a Gingerbread man game and the children made their Gingerbread men on the sheet from the same website. Which they loved so much I went onto Pinterest to find some more roll a dice activities for them to do.
We have been using some milk bottle tops to practise putting our numbers in order and learning to recognise number patterns to 10.
The role play area is very popular and I will have to remove the little pigs hats so they will act out the other stories instead. However, I’m glad they enjoy it that much.
