Day 4


Recap the story of the Gingerbread Man. What happens in the beginning, middle and end?

The Gingerbread Man sees lots of different animals in the story. Can you name them?

Today you are going to think of other animals he could have run away from. For example, First he saw a giraffe. Then he saw a goat.

Try to use time connectives to start each sentence…

Think about when we used them in class and which one can you use where in your writing.

Record your ideas in your books. Draw a picture of the animals to go with your writing if you like.



Recap the work done on place value so far. Ask your child how many tens are in 83? How many ones are in 56 and repeat with other numbers.

Your activity for today is this place value board game. I know some of you don’t have printers but you could have it open on your tablet to play.
