To wrap up my gingerbread week, I made my kids a cute gingerbread hunt! I started doing this when I taught kindergarten in Portland. The kids LOVE it!
Since my son and daughter have been sick and I had to be out last Friday, my class is doing our gingerbread hunt this week. But I couldn't wait to show you!
I made some cute, rhyming cards to hide around the school as your class goes on a hunt to find the missing Gingerbread Man! Before you go on the hunt, the students will make missing posters to put on display. The lesson can be about descriptive writing. I'm not sure about you, but my kids have SUCH a hard time writing descriptively. We've been working on adjectives for weeks now (Thanks to Kelley Dolling's Gingerbread Adjectives pack! :)
Once you go on the hunt and get back to the classroom, the kids will find the gingerbread man and you can give them ginger snap cookies or actual gingerbread cookies as a treat! You can also do this freebie writing that I whipped up!
There are 3 options for the writing prompt, so you can choose which one works the best for your class.
I love that The Gingerbread Man is not Christmas specific, but is still fun and has a holiday feel. Do you teach with the gingerbread man in December?
