All last week we talked about folktales and one of my favorite folktales we talk about over the holidays, is The Gingerbread Man.  So all last week we read gingerbread related folktales and did compare and contrast activities between the books.

One very unique story we read during this unit is Gingerbread Baby.  In this story the gingerbread character doesn’t get eaten by the fox at the end, the little boy makes a house for the gingerbread baby!  We talk about how the ending from Gingerbread Baby is different from all the other endings we’ve read.  Then we make a gingerbread house art project.
