Fingerplays and Rhymes:

Five little gingerbread boys/girls all in a row,

Each with frosting and a big red bow.

You can't catch me! one did say

And that little gingerbread boy/girl ran away!

Four little....

Three little....

Two little....

One little gingerbread boy/girl ready to go says:

Run, run as fast as you can!

You can't catch me! I'm the gingerbread man!

Bye, bye!

(Idea: choose five children to act out this rhyme as you say it. Repeat until all the children have had a chance.)



Stir a bowl of gingerbread (make stirring motion)

Smooth and spicy brown.

Roll it with a rolling pin

Up and up and down.

With a cookie cutter

Make some little men,

Put them in the oven

Until half past ten.
