Gingerbread Man

We have read three tales of gingerbread people during the month of December:  The Gingerbread Boy, The Gingerbread Girl, and The Gingerbread Baby.  Some of the elements of the story were similar while many of the details were different. 

Here are two other versions of the traditional story:

Version 1 and Version 2

Read each one.  Encourage your child to read as many words as s/he can, but support your reader as needed.  Students should know the "trick words" and be able to tap and read short vowel words as well as the words family words we have studied. Read further to find the COMMENT BOX activity.

I thought you might enjoy the song, too.

COMMENT BOX:  Choose one of the following to do:
A:  Tell two ways the stories are alike and two ways the stories are different.
B:  Retell one of the stories in your own words.
C:  Write a new ending for one of the stories.

Chloe Flythe wants to write a new ending to version 2:
The Fox says that he does not want to eat the Gingerbread Man, he doesn't even look that tasty. So the fox and the Gingerbread man laid down to take a nap and a cat came along and ate the Gingerbread man up.

The versions are different-
version 1 has a pig and version 2 has a chicken.
version 1 the fox helps the gingerbread man across the river before he eats him.

The versions are the same-
they both have a cow, a horse, and a fox.
they both have the run run as fast as you can song.

The gingerbread girl and the gingerbread baby come and says to the sly fox "look at that squirl!!" And they save the gingerbread man. The gingerbread baby almost got snapped but he turns to the fox and says "run! run! as fast as you see! you can't catch us we're the gingerbread family!!!!"
