Gingerbread Man

Retell the story with a pocket chart. Have the charters separate from the sentence strips so the children are able to move the text around and retell it again. This will help to develop oral language and conversation skills.

“I ran past the ________.

“You can’t catch me I’m the Gingerbread Man.”


Let the children create their own gingerbread person in the creative art center. 
Add cinnamon and ginger to your favorite play dough recipe.

Have the children do one to one correspondence with different cookies. They can also match and make patterns with the cookies.

Gingerbread Song (to the tune of “The Muffin Man”)

Oh, do you know the Gingerbread Man,
The Gingerbread Man, the Gingerbread Man?
Oh, do you know the Gingerbread Man,
Who ran and ran and ran?

Oh, he ran past the farmer,
The farmer, the farmer.
Oh, he ran past the farmer,
Saying catch me if you can
If you can, if you can.

Oh, he ran past the cow, the cow,
The cow.
Oh, he ran past the cow,
Saying catch me if you can
If you can, if you can.

Oh, he ran past the horse,
The horse, the horse.
Oh, he ran past the horse,
Saying catch me if you can
If you can, if you can.

Oh, do you know the Gingerbread Man
Now catch me if you can.
The Gingerbread Man
