I cannot believe I only have 2 more weeks left of summer! I am joining Teaching Blog Round Up in the Dog Days of Summer Giveaway by linking up a freebie. Click the above button to join in the great giveaway.
The first week of kindergarten at my school is all about the gingerbread man. We bake a gingerbread man, chase him around school, and create a wanted poster for him. Some lucky teacher finds him, and returns him to our class. Then we get to eat him. During the week, it cracks me up, because kinders really do smell or see him around the corner. Our office staff plays along, and crumbs are left on the table and floors.

One of the first skills we start investigating with our kinders is rhyme. Some years, it seems my kinders come into school already recognizing rhyming words, and other years less so. So I created a gingerbread activity to use with my kinders. You may want to use this on a pocket chart, as a Quiz-Quiz-Trade game, or at a literacy center. It will only be free for the next two weeks. Once I go back, I will put it on sale at my TPT store for a buck. :0) Click on one of the preview pictures below to get it free.
