Have some sweet Christmas reading fun with a gingerbread-themed letter-sound correspondence sorting activity.

A Sweet Beginning Sound and Letter Recognition Activity

Who doesn’t love the gingerbread man? Who doesn’t love gingerbread man + a phonics activity all in one! That’s right: you can use these delicious little treats to help your students practice matching letters with sounds and even as a fun way to practice spelling!

Introduce them to the sweet taste of letter-sound recognition with our Gingerbread Man Beginning Sound Sorting Set. Your students will love searching through the cookies to find the gingerbread men that belong in each letter jar.

🍪A Tasty Letter Recognition Activity

Each student will pick 1-5 cookie jars and say the sound of the letter on each. Next, students will need to search through the gingerbread pieces to find pictures that start with the same sound. Once they find a gingerbread man that matches the letter sound on their jar, they will place it on the jar and write the word (phonetically) on their recording sheet.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

In addition to individual student work time, use any of our other alphabet games to enhance learning through guided reading groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

  • Complete the letter recognition activity in a small group or one-to-one learning environment.
  • Reduce the number of cards or jars required to complete the letter recognition activity.
  • Additionally, provide access to previous assignments and posters for students to recall past lessons.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

  • Students use words from the letter jars to use in sentences or stories.
  • Students write a list of their own words that match the letter groups.
