See how comparing favorite versions of The Gingerbread Man turned my readers into thinkers! Lots of fun ideas for comprehension lessons, reading, gingerbread book activities and gingerbread man crafts in this post that are perfect for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade kids. Even though non-holiday related, these books are perfect to add to your classroom Christmas activities and December reading activities.

Do you know Rechenka's Eggs, by Patricia Polacco? Great story with reference to pysanky eggs! Closest thing to designing with wax is oil pastels. We watched a video clip of the real thing too! #artteachersofinstagram #pysanky #patriciapolacco #eastereggs #elementaryart #integratedarts #oilpastel #blickart #artproject #creatingart
