    I re- discovered my love for 'The Gingerbread Man' during my 2nd placement in Reception. We focussed on this book for two weeks and the benefits gained from this book was enormous.

We focussed on this book for two weeks and the benefits gained from this book was enormous. This book has the potential to be used for a range of purposes and it can be sued cross/ curricularly; to talk about settings (KUW), to explore the feelings in the book and the reasons behind the characters actions (PSED), sequencing and retelling the story (CLL), making character masks to enable them to act out story (CD) and even cooking gingerbread men; using rollers and cutters (PD). The book has a catchphrase which pupils love and the repetition greatly benefited pupils with EAL and SEN as they were able to pick up on the catchphrase and join in. Moreover, the illustrations in the book are a great aid to help these pupils further their understanding of the book and link words to pictures and in turn increase their vocabulary. The book can be used interactively and when first reading it to pupils I was asking pupils what they could see in the picture, what they thought would happen next and so on, thus keeping pupils engaged and coming up with different scenarios. This then led on to me introducing a range of different versions to the children and looking at differences and similarities between them. One of the aims of using this story was for pupils to sequence some of the story in their writing books and write a simple sentence according to their ability. Before doing this however, I ensured pupils were talking about the story during carpet sessions, re- enacting the story in their outside area with props and used the Small World Table to retell the story. The TES website have great resources for this book and I used programs in which pupils were able to create the scene for each page of the story themselves by listening to the story being read out to them and another program where pupils were required to simply use pictures and sequence the story with partners and talk about each picture. This book can be read to children from Nursery as it uses simple language, in Reception where it can be read to pupils and they can begin to read some of the words independently and talk about the pictures to others, and can be used, in my opinion until Year 1, where pupils can read it independently.

    I read the same story in my childhood for the very first time.. & now reading it again & its still the same :) One of the best lessons that one can teach to the children is that always listen to your elders. Never disobey them. Never indulge in wrong activities. Never disturb them, otherwise you will get in trouble & will have a sad ending like the Gingerbread Man. :/ I read the same story in my childhood for the very first time.. & now reading it again & its still the same :) One of the best lessons that one can teach to the children is that always listen to your elders.

    I have always loved the story of The Gingerbread Man and my son did too. We would always read it when we made gingerbread men. I like it that the fox gets him! Foxes are very smart.

Poor gingerbread man, after escaping for the old couple and outrunning all the creatures, becomes fox’s dessert. The story has a repetitive phrase which children will love to join in with. It is very fun story to be read to Reception or Year 1 children. Children can retell the story on a story board and include all the creatures in the order of their appearance. Children can bake their very own gingerbread man for D&T. They can draw and paint a gingerbread man. KS1 can write instructions for the recipe of gingerbread man. Children can write their own version of gingerbread man where he is chased by children’s chosen characters and they can even give different ending to the story as well. This classic story of magic, imagination and inspiration will delight children again and again. It is very useful in inspiring a lifelong love for literature and reading.

    I personally never liked the story of the gingerbread man. It always seemed a little harsh the way it ended so with this version I can't say that I like it because of the way it ends. However, the beginning of the story is fun and exciting and the illustrations are colorful and easy to follow along with the story.

    This is a different version with an old man and woman, cat, snake, goose and crafty fox. Different conversation occurs with the fox and fox sings his own song at the end. Nice vocabulary used throughout. Highly recommend for grades K-2.

    Very cute takeoff on the original story. There was a lot of new vocabulary that can be introduced. It did facilitate some rhyming words. The illustrations were very descriptive and makes the story easily retold. It is also a good story for sequencing.

    A fun classic about a couple that wants a child, so the wife decides to create one out of gingerbread. The Gingerbread Man escapes out the window and has to outrun all the animals that attempt to catch him.

    I have never really been impressed with this book, even though it is a classic. I am not really sure why. I think it is because of the fox in the story. It almost seems as if they are crossing the 3 Little Pigs, and Red Ridinghood together. It just doesn't seem original.

    The book is a fun book to read! The gingerbread is getting into trouble and running from it. The kids will love repeating the "you can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man". To see what kind of fun he is going to get into next

    I enjoyed the way my peer read this book. And the prop she created to go with it. The book is adorable- I am not a gingerbread man- he freaks me out. But children really do enjoy these books and the pictures are nicely illustrated as well.

    The story is different from the original gingerbread story, but is interesting. The book is maybe best for children around the age of 7 or 8 and up, because the book is different from the original and the words are kind of small.

A staple book for reception!

    This delightful tale of a little gingerbread man, dashing out, hot from the oven into the street and cleverly evading all his potential predators, but one! Is this a lesson to children never to trust the kindness of strangers? Suitable for children from nursery to year one or two.

    Is this story saying that you can't escape your fate? It's a gingerbread man's fate to get eaten. Also, would the old couple have eaten him if he hadn't run away? I guess they would have.

    This is a charming book version of the old European folktale. My children and grandchild enjoyed it.

    This version of the gingerbread man was fun. I loved the prop my classmate did in Language and literacy by using an box from amazon and creating a little stove, covering it with white paper and designing it using felt for the burners and markers for coloring buttons. Its a story that gets stuck in your head and the prop can be set in a station to allow the kids to retell the story with it.
