Gingerbread Man Themed Lesson Plan Activities For Teletherapy

Any theme centered around a type of cookie is a win in my book. I love using the theme of gingerbread men in speech teletherapy before winter break!

But have you ever noticed that the gingerbread man story actually has nothing to do with Christmas or winter? In fact, it appears to be set during the spring or summer. Go figure?!

However, the option to extend the theme beyond the story and into gingerbread cookie making is always a hit! If you want to incorporate this versatile theme into your speech therapy sessions this year, check out the slew of digital activities available to you!

Gingerbread-Themed Boom Cards for Speech Therapy

Gingerbread Boom Card Deck for Speech Therapy Articulation and Language

This Boom Cards deck contains 7 gingerbread man-themed activities, 3 of which relate to the story and the rest to making cookies themselves. With sections for so many goals including articulation, sequencing, story retelling, verbs, following directions, vocabulary, and more, this deck is a go-to for my entire elementary caseload!

Gingerbread PDF Activity for Speech Therapy

FREEBIE ALERT! This quick PDF download can be used to target positional concepts (with visuals!) by trying to find the hidden gingerbread man on each page! A perfect language activity that can also be used to fill a few minutes of time at the end of the session.
