Gingerbread Man Cutout Template

Who is ready for some Gingerbread Man fun?  My kids always love making Christmas cookies every year.  Each year as the children get older, the cookies taste and look better.  This year we will have a new project – making a Gingerbead Man on paper…(and a Gingerbread house in stickers!)  Do you want to make  a Gingerbread Man?  I have a Gingerbread Man Cutout Template for you!  Not only that but I have a great lesson plan that goes along with the book Gingerbread Man Loose in the School.  I recently purchased this book for my children and I instantly fell in love and needed to make a lesson for it.  Here are a few of our favorite gingerbread activities and books.  The Gingerbread Man look in the School is absolutely adorable.   My boys love the Ninjabread story…  (it is not as cute as the Loose in School, but, it is cute and boys love it).

Gingerbread Man Loose in the School is an adorable book about a class who makes a Gingerbread Man cookie.  Just as the gingerbread man is coming out of the oven, the class goes out to recess and the gingerbread man is left indoors.  What is a gingerbread man to do?  He leaves the classroom to find his class because he wants to play!  On the way he breaks off a toe, falls into a lunch box, and visits the principal.  In the end, the class posts a Missing Cookie sign looking for him.

The Gingerbread Man Cutout Template has a bunch of fun pages that will go along perfectly with the Gingerbread Man Loose in the School book.  For instance I also have a Gingerbread House template and a Missing Cookie page too!  If you read this book for a lesson, you could all make Gingerbread men.  (He could even have a missing toe if you wanted!)   Each child could put their name on the back of their Gingerbread Man.  Then, the Gingerbread Men could get lost around the school (or within the classroom… ) and if found be returned to the correct Missing Cookie pictures.  You could even have the Missing Cookie pictures posted around the school (or within the classroom) and have the students try and find the correct one for each Gingerbread Man Cutout.  It will be a Gingerbread Man Hide and Seek game.

Handwriting Patch Curriculum

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound ReadingMrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.

  4. Can I please have the elf template? I gave my name and email but have not gotten it yet. Thank you so much !

    1. Hi there,

      So sorry you had trouble. Here are some common solutions…

      Did you enter in your email into the form so that the freebie is sent to you? You have to enter your email into the form each time so that the correct freebie is sent to you. (You are not re-added to the email list -the system is smart enough to know you are already on the list).

      Did you get the email with the link to the freebie? Sometimes things go to the spam box. I have 2 different servers…one that sends the freebie and the next one signs you up for the newsletter. If you got an email from me that did not have your freebie you requested, it means that the freebie email was sent -but likely went into spam.

      If you got the email with the freebie link in it…can you click the link in the email? If you can click the link, then your freebie will either download into your download folder or it will open in a new tab in your browser. Did you check your download folder? That is where the download will go once you click the link. Did you check a new tab in your browser?

      Another common problem is sometimes you get the email and it has the link -but it is not hyperlinked…in which case you have to copy/paste the link into the browser and it will download into the download folder.

      Anyway, have you tried those things and are you still having trouble? If so, just reply back and I will attach it for you 🙂

      I just like to first let people know common problems to help you next time. 🙂 You can always feel free to message me -but, I try to teach people with common issues because I have lots of people to help…so, teaching helps cut that down a little bit 🙂 Let me know if you still are having trouble and I will attach! I know that sometimes computers are silly and don’t sent things we ask them too…so, if you can’t find your freebie you requested, just let me know -I am happy to attach! Enjoy the worksheets! You can email me at [email protected] if you are still having trouble!
