Gingerbread Love...

Update: Gingerbread Literacy Activities & Gingerbread Numbers have been posted to TPT and TN. =) Check below for a rounding freebie!

It's the afternoon and I am still in my pj's! =) I *wish* I could say I just rolled out of bed, but that is not the case...I have been busy working on some gingerbead-ish things for my class this week. After blog hopping, well, stalking, I found lots of great stuff (which I will be using!).
Here comes the but...But I really needed something more for my second graders. I needed fun incorporated with skill review because we have a big *theme* test this week in reading!
So I have been busy at work with this...

which led to this...

and three hours later...this...
As if that wasn't enough...I started thinking about math...
and more math
which then became this...

Here's a freebie for you!Click on the picture to grab it.

I think I may have lost my mind. What should have taken me no time to write lesson plans for this week...has now not even been started! =) I have my math stations and my literacy to spread them across the week!!!
And just to be clear, these are geared toward my second graders...(I know the blog still says first...I have both now! =))

If you have read this are in luck! I think I need someone, well probably more than one someone, to proof these and give me some feedback! So I will give both units AWAY to the first three people willing to proof and provide feedback. =) Just leave your name and email in the comments. I will email them to you! =)


  1. I would love to proof your units!


  2. I will do it:)

  3. Me too if you don't have a third!

  7. eek! Rounding! ahhh!!! lol...thank you for the freebie!

  8. Jen R. loved the "eek"! This is the first year I ever taught rounding. Believe it or not, the got it the second day!!! I started with a number line from 1 to 20 on the floor. It was AMAZING to me that they got it! Let me know if you want to know what I did for the whole lesson...and I'll blog about it! =)

  9. Hello,

    I purchased your unit. It looks awfully cute and I am excited to use it, but I can't open anything up besides the preview page. I'm not sure if it is an error I am making or if it is an error with Teachers Pay Teachers. Either way, could you please just email it to me?


  10. Sandy,
    I just emailed the unit to you. I am sorry for the error!

  11. Adorable gingerbread bonanza! What a busy PJ day. {My favorite kind of day!}

    I love your blog. I have awarded you the Liebster Award over on my blog.

  12. This is really adorable and very creative. Just like you, I am always trying to think of creative ways to teach. My recent posts include 3D worksheets and water bottle learning centers.
