Dress a gingerbread man online. The text is highlighted as it is read to give you directions on what pieces to choose to build a gingerbread cookie.  Various choices allow this game activity to be repeated with differing outcomes while supporting learning and building literacy skills. Click here.
To practice recognition of capital and lowercase letters, print out and use contact paper to laminate the gingerbread man activity pieces.  Separate just the letter cookies you need to go with 2 of the letter boards to start.  Play as a BINGO style game taking turns choosing a cookie letter tile and identify the letter and place it on the correct Gingerbread man cookie.   Work together with your child taking turns to determine which cookie will win!  Play continues until one game board is completely covered.  Play again and see if the same cookie wins or not. Continue practicing the same two boards with your child until they are confident in knowing those letters before moving onto other game boards.Click the GBM letter bingo game pdf below to view and print. Have fun!
