The Gingerbread Bear

I just found this book from Scholastic online and had to order it. We had a day of gingerbread fun with it.
We read The Gingerbread Bear and The Gingerbread Man. Then we compared them. Then we made these cute gingerbread bears to go with out venn. I let my kids use the "fancy" scissors again to cut the "icing." They think those scissors are the best!

We created a story map to retell the story. 
Then we wrote about what we would do if we caught a gingerbread bear. 

In math, we read Ten Gingerbread Men. 
We used large five-frames to make sets of numbers from 10-15. We looked at how many groups of 5 went into each number. We also worked on conservation of number, counting in different directions, and cardinality. We also acted out the story using the large gingerbread cards. 

We also worked in partners to make sets and match the numbers to the sets. We rolled three dice to generate numbers. You can get the unit with the picture cards and numbers here

I just got this book too and LOVE it! Will your activities be in a unit on TPT?

I love your ideas! I am so getting that book. I am wondering about your unit also? Is it available?
Kindergarten is my heart

There is a link at the end of the unit. It might not be that obvious, but it is in the last sentence :)

Such cute ideas, and the bears are adorable! In the first picture, what is the boy writing and what is the rest of the class writing on the dry erase boards?

Mrs. Larremore said...

We are creating the venn diagram as a whole group. The student next to me is writing what we decided on the sentence strip and all of the other students are writing the same thing on their dry erase board. This way everyone practices and writes not just the one who is working with me.

It will give you a general thought of the benefit of endeavoring to secure the best rate back that you can. It can likewise help you check whether renegotiating might be a feasible alternative as well. Cash Advance
