The Gingerbread Hunt
We read The Gingerbread Man, The Gingerbread Girl, and Gingerbread Friends and when we went to eat our own gingerbread cookies, we realized they were missing. We saw a trail of crumbs leading out the door so we knew the worst had happened...our gingerbread men had run away. Mr. Moe told us that they were in his room watching Planet Earth, but then left. Mr. Birch's dog puppet told us "Arf, Arf"??? Mrs. Bishop and the 4th graders told us that they were in their class but left and went to the auditorium but Mr. Johnson had not seen them. Mrs. Putrah saw them and we even noticed some sprinkles in her office but they were not there. Mr. Bean said they were reading in the library but then went to Mrs. Rhoades room since it was quieter. Mrs. Coombe let us look around the health office, but no luck there either. Finally, our 3rd grade buddies came to the rescue. When the cookies ran into their room, they blocked the doors and trapped them! We were then able to share the cookies with our 3rd grade buddies!
