Northside Students Go On "Gingerbread Man Hunt"
All the kindergarten students at Northside School read the book, Gingerbread Man Loose in the School by Laura Murray. At the end of the story they discovered a note that said the Gingerbread Man was actually loose somewhere in their own Northside School!
They and their teachers went on a "Gingerbread Man Hunt" on which they found clues about where he'd run and where to go further to find him. The children excitedly searched the school.
The children developed their reading skills and social skills as they collaborated with each other predicting where the gingerbread man would go next and drawing their own conclusions. All of the students enjoyed the hunt and learned from the experience.
