We are doing some serious book work with the Gingerbread books. There are several books and several fabulous concepts to pull from them. We will do one book a day, along with my mini unit of related gingerbread activities.
- The Gingerbread Boy (don't remember the author, but it's the 1975 version at Barnes and Noble)
- The Gingerbread Man
- The Gingerbread Girl
- The Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett
- Character Map
The kids were also super excited to see the author of their emergent reader was me! They felt like the most special kids in the world when I told them I wrote a book just for them. I really like how well it worked and I am able to implement the sight words I want to go with our themes/reading units each week. I think I may be writing a lot more of them soon! I see a Santa book coming very soon. Is there a theme or set of sight words you'd love to see in an emergent reader? Just let me know! I had a lot of fun making these books!
Below are pics of our character maps (located in the gingerbread pack), or yesterday's post for the free gingerbread boy.
