The Gingerbread Man Storybook and Activities

A popular elementary theme for December is the gingerbread man.  The TES I-Board has two wonderful interactive activities for The Gingerbread Man story. 

The first activity is an interactive book.  Students can hear the book as it is read to them and can click on the magic wand to recreate the scenery of the story. 

The second activity allows students to sequence and retell the story.  Students can drag the story scenes to the timeline and play the timeline to listen to the retelling in the order they chose.  Use the arrows on the timeline to reorder scenes.  Students can also use the pencil to edit the text and to retell the story in their own words.

A simpler version of the Gingerbread Man story can be found at Starfall.com.  In this version, students first choose shapes and colors for the gingerbread man's eyes, nose, and buttons.  Then the gingerbread man runs away.  This activity would be perfect for lower primary students.

  3. The interactive book is Flash, make sure you have the newest version of Flash installed on your computer.
