Gingerbread Unit

I was a terrible blogger in the month of November!  I will do better this month.   We started the month off with our Gingerbread Man unit.  This is one of my favorite units we do all year!  So far the kiddos are loving it too!

It all started on Thursday when all of kindergarten got together to read the story, Gingerbread Baby, by Jan Brett and then made our own gingerbread man.  We put him in the oven to bake and asked our secretary to keep an eye on him, but NOT to open the oven.  Of course she just couldn't help herself and she peeked before the time was up.  Our Gingerbread Man ran away!!  The next day we decided we needed to make wanted posters to show our families. 
We are so excited to read the postcards that have come in from different family members that have spotted our Gingerbread Man.  He has been all across the United States and has even left the country a couple of times. 

Today we decided we needed to know why everybody wants to eat the Gingerbread Man.  So we did a graphing activity while eating these little gingerbread men.  Everyone got a cookie and took just one bite.  Let me just tell you it was not easy to get them to stop after that first bite :).  Before we ate the rest of the cookie though we needed to make a graph of what part everyone bit first.   

We are having so much fun with our Gingerbread Man unit!  I can't wait to paste more for you on Friday!
