The Gingerbread Baby

Have you read the book Gingerbread Baby with your class?  I love Jan Brett and all of her wonderful books, but this one is my favorite.


What if Matti (from the Gingerbread Baby) dropped off a tray of gingerbread babies for your students to care for?  Well that's exactly what will be happening in our class next week! My Fab Firsties will be so excited when a special letter from Matti is delivered to us with a tray of gingerbread babies! 


Our Gingerbread Babies will be delivered in adorable little baby strollers all lined up on a cookie sheet! Oh my gosh....how cute is that??


The firsties will get to name their baby, fill out it's Birth Certificate and make it a baby book.  





I even found tiny little rattles and baby bottles at the Dollar Tree! What????? I know! Sooo cute!!


After a few days of caring for their babies, the students will get a final letter from Matti thanking them for taking such good care of the little Gingys.....and a box of gingerbread cookies as a treat!  I am SUPER EXCITED to start this with my kids! Be sure to tune in next week to see all the fun and surprises with this fun unit! 


Want to do this with your kids too?  You can grab your copy of Adopt A Gingerbread Baby here! Or if you'd rather.....you can have your kids Adopt An Elf! Both activities will add some fun and magic to your classroom this holiday season!
