Gingerbread Man Hunt
Throughout the season we did tons of gingerbread activities. Today we made a gingerbread cookie and of course when we went to get him out of the oven he had run away! After a chase around the building (he left us lots of great clues), we found him back in our classroom! What a tasty snack! He was so easy to make. We purchased the Betty Crocker gingerbread mix, a Wilton pan from Amazon, and we were on our way! Cooking in the classroom is a great way to incorporate math skills, not to mention cooking is a life skill our little friends will need as they get older!
Discussing how to read a recipe (ingredients and step by step directions)
(mixing the batter up)
(I forgot to take a picture of him before we cut him all up! We did lots of little squares because we shared with our fifth grade reading buddies who were coming up to listen to us read after snack!)
