Kids LOVE the gingerbread man so obviously, it makes complete sense to spend at least a week incorporating it into your students’ learning during the month of December. My Yummy Gingerbread Man Book is a perfect interactive activity to get your students in the holiday mood. Are you looking for more Christmas ideas, activities, and printables to do at home or in the classroom? If so click here.
My Yummy Gingerbread Man Book contains two different book options, depending on the level of your students. One book has students writing the words in the blank, while the other book option has students tracing the words. Each book contains 4 pages.
Getting My Yummy Gingerbread Book Ready

-copy of gingerbread book for each student
–gingerbread cookie (if you want to do this step)
Doing My Yummy Gingerbread Book
What I love about this book is that students will get to eat a gingerbread cookie (score!) and will have to practice following directions. In order for them to complete the activity, they will need to listen to what step is next.
Each student gets a cookie, a book set, and seven gingerbread cutouts. As a class we complete each step one at a time. After completing the cover page, I have students write (or trace) the first body part that we will be writing.
I usually have students eat the corresponding part of the gingerbread cookie next, but you can easily have them tear the body part off of the gingerbread die cut first and do the cookie after.
Next, students will tear off the part of the body that you wrote on the paper and ate.
Lastly, they will glue their gingerbread man at the top of the page.
All of these steps will be repeated this page by page, starting with a brand new gingerbread man die cut each time. On the final page, you will just glue the part of the cookie that is remaining, the body. Once that is complete, students can eat the remainder of their cookie.
