Gingerbread Part 2

Last week, we were still going strong with our gingerbread adventures!  Here are some of our centers!

Literacy:

We practiced writing our alphabet neatly and then matched gingerbread felt pieces to the matching uppercase felt house.  We even practiced putting them in ABC order!

Ooohhh….this one was SO much fun!  The children stamped sight words into gingerbread playdough and then wrote the word they stamped.

The children hunted for missing gingerbread boys around the room and solved the letterbox puzzles.  Those gingerbread boys can be tricky!!

We pulled “candy” out of jar and listened carefully for the ending sound.  We dobbed the correct ending sound.

This is our weekly pocket chart center.  This one is from Julie Lee’s gingerbread unit.

Math Centers:

At this center, the children rolled a double dice (you can’t see it in this picture!), counted the number of dots and then counted that many candies onto the gingerbread man.  Then they graphed what they rolled by dobbing the correct number.  The candy is from a Lakeshore counting box.

At this center, the children practiced counting by 10s and sequencing the numbers.

Here the children measured different size gingerbreads with peppermint and gumdrop “rulers.”

The next 2 centers are also from Julie Lee’s gingerbread pack.

We also got to decorate our gingerbread cookies! Shoot! One of them ran away – more on that on another day Winking smile

I made this little planning sheet for the kids to plan out how they wanted their cookie to look.  It was quite successful – no mounds of candy in one spot here!
