A fun, hands-on holiday activity using a die and a chart to create a gingerbread house to include in a narrative text.

Use this holiday teaching resource to create the setting for a narrative text.

How to use this resource:

  1. Roll the die. Match the number rolled to a row on the chart, and see which feature is in the ‘1st Roll’ column. Draw it onto a blank piece of paper.
  2. Roll again. Match the number to a row on the chart, and see which feature is in the ‘2nd Roll’ column. Add this element to your drawing.
  3. Continue in this same manner until you have all six elements of your gingerbread house in the setting.
  4. Write a narrative text that includes your gingerbread house in the setting.

This resource works great as a writing center activity during the weeks leading up to Christmas.
