Gingerbread Man, Girl, Boy, Baby, Pirate…

We have been enjoying many different versions of the classic folktale, The Gingerbread Man. So far, students have listened to The Gingerbread Man, The Gingerbread Girl, The Gingerbread Boy, and The Ninjabread Man.

Students were asked to choose an ordinary item and share what Captain Cookie would call it.  Look at these creative ideas:




There are so many versions to come!
