Gingerbread Kids

1st graders have been hard at work reading and writing fairy tales. Some of our favorite fairy tales we have read thus far have been the Gingerbread Boy, Gingerbread Baby and of course The Stinky Cheese Man (a twist on the Gingerbread Boy).  1st graders and Kindergarten buddies created iPad illustrations and sequencing activities to go along with the Gingerbread stories.

After reading and comparing all these stories, we had fun with Gingerbread Boys and Girls during math time. Students imagined running after that quick gingerbread boy and going snip, snap just like the fox.  1st graders then graphed which part of the gingerbread man they would eat first. First, we graphed on the Smartboard which is always fun since the boys and girls like to see who "wins".
We then took our graph and made it life size on the bulletin board.  We made sure to analyze our results and had a good math discussion. 1st graders also wrote sentences about what they noticed after seeing our finished graph.

Which part of the gingerbread man do you eat first? Make sure to add your vote to our poll below.
