The Gingerbread Man was a highly engaging math
Note to parents: and literacy event in our kindergarten. Students
measured and mixed, decorated, and baked a big
gingerbread man, just like the one in the stories
that were read aloud to them.
When we went to check our gingerbread man to
see if he was cool enough to eat, he was gone! He
left clues around the school, and our search
began. We went from place to place, but alas, he
went out of the gate to places unknown.
Since then, we made our own book about where
we think he may have gone. We made pictures of
some of the characters from the story. We read the
chant on the pocket chart. Our parents saw him
when he came back to school at Open House, but
he ran away again! Too bad.
Will we ever hear from him again? We’ll have to
wait and see.
Oh no, he’s gone!
He left us a note!
Have you seen our gingerbread man?
Run, run as fast as you can,
You can’t catch me,
I’m the Gingerbread Man!
Where is our
gingerbread man now?
