After reading The Gingerbread Man with our 3rd grade buddies, we were going to eat our gingerbread cookies. But when we went to find the cookies, they ran away. Our class went on a hunt for them around the school. We looked everywhere...some teachers said that they ran through their rooms. Others had not seen them. Mr. Garbart said that if he saw them he would eat them all up...so we needed to find them before he did! One teacher said that one ran in her room and ate half her donut! We finally followed the crumb trail to our third grade buddies class. They trapped them for us. We all decided to eat their legs first so they would not run away again. As we were finishing one child exclaimed, "Ms. Baker...that ladies donut is in my gingerbread girl's belly!" Thanks Kyla for making such wonderful (yet sneaky) cookies for our class!
