    Several of my team mates and I are just finishing our Jan Brett author study. Kinderlit has an excellent project book to go with this study. Here are some of the other ideas we've done with her books.
    We kicked off our lesson by reading "Hedgie's Surprise" and making Hedgie cookies-- idea found on her web site.

    1. "Gingerbread Baby" --- A)We brought in gingerbread cookies and did a graphing lesson on which part they bit off first. B) We read the original version of the Gingerbread Boy and completed a Venn Diagram. C) We made indvidual books by tracing a gingerbread baby pattern and writing the story.

    2. "Wild Christmas Reindeer" A) We made reindeer bags with reindeer food. B) art project: trace a foot w/o toes and both of their hands(antlers) make it into a reindeer. C) reindeer sandwiches: peanut butter sandwich cut in to triangle, pretzels for antlers, raisin for nose.

    3. For "The Hat" and "The Mitten" we made a hat glyph and a mitten glyph. We also did a venn diagram comparing the two stories.

    Hope these ideas help you.
