►Topic

Today we are retelling the story of the Gingerbread Man.

Watch the story again, I have attached it below and then talk about the events and characters.

Print the puppets below or make your own, ask your child to cut them out and stick them to sticks or straws etc. Then role play the story together.

Talk about what each of the characters say, focussing on using language from the story. We are working on speech later in the week.

I would love to see some videos of your child telling parts of the story with the puppets.
