I have been working on a new literacy center/word work unit. It has uppercase and lowercase Christmas lights. Students use the picture mats to match the upper and lowercase letter to the picture under the tree.
Christmas lights literacy fun
Well in the spirit of the season we are reading all the different versions of the Gingerbread Man. Today we read the The Gingerbread Baby. I created this retelling page to help students retell the story. First, mix the dough to make the gingerbread man. Second, the gingerbread boy runs from all the animals. Then he goes into the gingerbread house that Mattie made for him. Lovely story with a great ending. I have been working with my kids to retell using our retelling rope. LOVE IT!! It is just a piece of fleece rolled up with four ribbons tied in it. The students hold each part of the ribbon as they retell the story. FUN! It had helped students with comprehension and retelling!
