In this 8-class workshop, we will read and compare 3 different Gingerbread Stories and then students will write, edit, and share a creative Gingerbread Story of their own! #creative

Class experience

US Grade 2 - 3
Students will identify the characters and story structure for three different versions of The Gingerbread Man.
Students will create an outline for their own unique Gingerbread Story idea.
Students will write and edit a draft of their story.
Students will listen and support other writers in a Publication Celebration.
Students will orally share their Gingerbread story with confidence and be supported with enthusiasm by their peers.
I created this class offering as an adapted version from the unit I used to teach with my first grade students.
For this version, I have limited the number of stories we will compare and have extended the writing portion to create an even more dynamic and unique experience for students to use their creativity to create their own stories and practice their writing and editing skills along the way! :)
Plus, I just love gingerbread! :)
The various versions of The Gingerbread Man are all unique and fun in their own way. This will help give students an example of how the same basic story or structure can be used to create wildly new, fun and exciting stories of their own! :) The sky is the limit with what they can create!
Homework Offered
In between classes 7-8, once students have learned and practiced their editing skills during class, they will be given the assignment to finish their editing to bring a completed final draft to our last class for a Writer's Celebration. :)
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Students will be assessed by their progress in following along with the PDF downloads / worksheets I have created for the class. There is a story comparison chart that we will work on completing together each week as we read the story. Then there is one for each, their story outline, their first draft, and a checklist for editing their writing to create a final draft.
Grades Offered
All PDF downloads will be provided by the teacher in the form of a Gingerbread Journal.
Students will need to bring a printed version of the downloads to class along with a pencil.
Students may also want to have extra writing paper on hand if needed for extra space while writing during weeks 4-6.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
