December book of the month

Product Details

December book of the month is The Gingerbread Man.  This classic book has so many repetitive opportunites jam packed in the pages, and the kids absolutely love it!

Tonight, Ashlynn's word was "man" which combines a bilabial sound 'm' with a final consonant 'n.'  On almost every other page the Gingerbread man shouts,

"Run, run, fast as you can.  You can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread man!"  Then, various characters procede to try and catch him while calling "come back, come back!"  It didn't take long before Ashlynn was shouting "come back" along with me.

As usual, depending on your child and their needs, you can have them repeat the word, a phrase, or an entire sentence with the target sounds embedded in it.  For older kids, it's another great sequencing/retell activity to do after you read the book.  My school aged kids really like cutting out felt characters and placing them on a felt board while retelling the story. 

Happy reading!!
