Gingerbread Characters Printable

I created this free printable to go with the story of The Gingerbread Man.

The first page has pictures of characters and animals, some are from the story and some are not.

The second page is a t-chart that has picture cues at the top to support non-readers.

Gingerbread Printable

Students can cut out the pictures of the characters and glue them to the correct side of the t-chart. This activity can be used to assess beginning comprehension skills as well as following directions and cutting.

I’m always on the lookout for anything gingerbread man related so I was super excited when I discovered Kraft Gingerbread Mallows at the grocery store last week.

I used the Gingerbread and Holiday Mallows to create two fun activities for my Gingerbread Math packet.

The activity pictured directly above is sorting and the one below is graphing.

    • That is a fantastic way to tie in gingerbread to a very meaningful family activity, kudos! Your students are very lucky to have you as a teacher!
