Reflection: Classroom Setup Gingerbread Text Structures - Section 1: Compare and Contrast Cookies


To set up the lesson you will need cookies. Most years I have parents and families ask if they can bring in a special treat for the class. I use this opportunity to get cookies for my lesson. When a family asks I explain the lesson and then the family will usually bring up a cookie they can bring in. Sometimes we get very lucky and have unique cookies to taste. 

I find that working with my families like this is a win-win. The kids love it and those that bring in the cookies love to have their cookies used in the lesson.

Gingerbread Text Structures

Unit 15: Holiday Lessons Throughout the Year
Lesson 2 of 5

Objective: SWBAT compare and contrast two versions of the Gingerbread Boy story. They will also discuss problem and solution of the two stories.

Big Idea: A great lesson to practice text structures between two stories that are similar. In this lesson I use two versions of the Gingerbread Man to help with compare and contrast.
