Our second grade class is working on writing gingerbread stories so we read several different accounts of the classic story. We worked on comparing settings and comparing the story events themselves. We discovered two different tricks that the fox used to lure his prey and also found that often the gingerbread boy kind of brought his fate upon himself. Most of the gingerbread characters are quite arrogant which leads to their demise.
I love the infusion of Spanish words in this story. It added a lot of flavor to the reading.
