How Tall Are You? Comparing Our Height to the Gingerbread Man

Gingerbread Men are a part of the holiday season. I love this math idea for comparing heights from my friend Kim.
To get ready, she cut out a gingerbread man the height of an average 5 year old. She made a graph and selected some gingerbread man clip art..
Hang the gingerbread man so that his feet are touching the ground. Invite each child to come and stand in front of or beside the gingerbread man. The children decide if they are shorter, taller, or the same height as the gingerbread man. Add a gingerbread man cut out to the correct column on the graph.

Pin It!

So very sorry for your loss. Oh how difficult these times can be. A Daddy is a person that can NEVER be replaced and it certainly matters not how old his little girl is. I miss mine each and every minute. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Love and Hugs,
Mrs. Lilly Kindergarten

Oh my goodness, my sympathy is extended to you and Megan in your time of need. You two are TRULY special people and God has a plan. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I too lost a baby and was then blessed 4 years later with another child. Keep faith.

So very sad for your difficult times. It is good to know that both your father and your grandbaby are in a wonderful place together, but that does not help the awful pain of loss. I will be praying for you and your family---and will pray for that peace that passes understanding.

Long distance hug,
Liesl in VA

I am very sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family. I pray that Megan will find peace. I lost three babies and have three (35, 27, 24). God Bless you all.

I had to do a math lesson for my class and was wondering how to make it cute with a Christmas theme. This is a wonderful idea! I will be doing this for my lesson in my preschool class. Thank you so much

Hugs to everyone who sent hugs and kind words during this time of loss. We continue to share warm memories of my dad and are spending lots of time with mom to keep her going! Have a Merry Christmas with your families, hug them and spend lots of time laughing! Hugs to all!
