The Gingerbread Man is a classic story that is perfect for this time of year! As you know, there are several variations. We chose to use the version by Jim Aylesworth. Here is the video we’ve linked to the digital activities in Seesaw.

Each activity in Seesaw is linked with a video of the story. Although students may not need to listen every day, the option is there if they’d like to! On the first day, students practice visualizing a part of the story.

Day two is an activity that is always one of my favorites! Students retell the story using the microphone in Seesaw. They also put the story event pictures in order.

By day three, students are ready to draw and write about the problem and solution in the story. They also get to tell about how they would’ve solved the Gingerbread Man’s problem.

On day four,  students dive into character traits. For this activity, students think about ways the fox tricked the Gingerbread Man. They draw a picture and write about two examples from the text.
