The Gingerbread Man Ran!

While a Gingerbread Man hunt is fun, 
it isn't necessarily common core...


I made a little making predictions 
booklet so I can now say,
Why yes, this IS a common core activity!

I am so excited about this product
I just made! I will have our classroom
elf bring one back from the North Pole
 each day of the week, starting Monday.
If you don't have a classroom elf, you
can just have them delivered to your classroom.

There are 5 10 original "newspapers"
included in this packet and I am
working on more. I plan to have 10.


All 10 are finished and in the product!

I was very excited to find this linky!
I am always looking for new ideas
and love to share mine!

Here are a few pics from last years
visit from our elf! He brought red candy
canes, which the Grinch licked green!
Fortunately, Santa sent new red ones!

Click here for last years post and links 
to some more Gingerbread Man activities!
There are several, including a missing poster
for the Gingerbread Man.

I picked up a couple of these
little guys last year on clearance and 
froze them. Makes things a little
easier! I was making homemade
gingerbread dough and making
my own gingerbread men to run
away each year but this simplifies 
things! We don't eat this Gingerbread
Man. I buy small cookies for the students
to decorate and eat.

I created a couple of new products
to use in my classroom for math early
finishers...or just to take a break and 
have a little extra Christmas fun!
 Click each of the covers to
check them out in my TpT store!

I love teaching inference and the
Disney Pixar short films are a fun
and engaging way to add to our lessons.
I created a few graphic organizers to
go with several of these short films.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a clever way of keeping the fun in first grade while making it Common Core, too! Thanks for sharing at Manic Monday.
