Gingerbread People Songs

Gingerbread people songs for preschoolers through second grade.


To practice rhyming and color identification our class used the following chant during our Ginger bread theme.

I cut out ginger bread people of each color for the children to use. The children loved it, and the activity really helped reinforce rhyming.

I’m a ginger bread man

And I can think

I’m a ginger bread man

My color is pink.

I’m a ginger bread man

And I smile, not frown

I’m a ginger bread man

My color is brown.

I’m a ginger bread man

And I’m looking at you

I’m a ginger bread man

My color is blue.

I’m a ginger bread man

That’s what I said

I’m a ginger bread man

My color is red.

I’m a ginger bread man

And I’ll be right back

I’m a ginger bread man

My color is black.

I’m a gingerbread man

And I say orange

I’m a ginger bread man

My color is orange.

I’m a ginger bread man

And milk I slurple

I’m a ginger bread man

My color is purple.

I’m a ginger bread man

And I’m a real nice fellow

I’m a ginger bread man

My color is yellow.

We also measured how many ginger bread men tall we each were and made a graph.


Gingerbread People Songs

Stir a bowl of ginger bread (make stirring motion)
Smooth and spicy brown
Roll it with a rolling pin (pretend to roll dough)
Up and up and down With a cookie cutter (pretend to cut cookies w/ cutter)
Make some little men,
Put them in the oven (put tray in the oven)
Until half past ten.


This is sung to the tune” The muffin man”

Oh do you know the ginger bread man, the ginger bread man, the ginger bread man.

OH do you know the ginger bread man who ran and ran and ran.

He said “catch me if you can, if you can, if you can, He said “catch me if you can” then ran and ran and ran. I can run like the ginger bread man, the ginger bread man the ginger bread man. I can run like the ginger bread man Now catch me if you can.


Original story-song to use with storyboard pieces and student participation sung to tune “One, two, buckle my shoe”

Once there was a ginger bread man
Baking in a ginger bread pan
Raisin eyes and cherry nose
Trimmed right down to his fingers and toes
A ginger bread man in a ginger bread pan

Here’s the old woman who made him so sweet
A treat for her and her husband to eat
She made him with flour and sugar and eggs
She gave him a face and two arms and two legs
A ginger bread man in a ginger bread pan

Now open the oven to see if he’s done
This gingerbread boy, he knows how to run
Out of the oven and onto the floor
Now run away out the kitchen door
The ginger bread man, he’s out of the pan!

 

 

So let us go home and get out the pan
And we’ll make ourselves a new gingerbread man!
And when he is eaten, we’ll make us some more
But this time be certain to lock the back door!


From Piggyback Songs: (To the tune of Frere Jacques)

Ginger bread, ginger bread,
Yum, yum, yum, Yum, yum, yum.
I like ginger bread, I like gingerbread,
In my tum, In my tum.
