The Gingerbread Boy

Today was an exciting day in Kindergarten.  Ms. Kieltyka read us an awesome story called "The Gingerbread Boy" by Paul Galdone.  We learned that stories have characters and that characters can be people and they can be animals!  We made a list of all the characters in the story.


Now all this talk about gingerbread made us really hungry, so we decided to make our own class gingerbread boy.  Before you can start cooking, you need some instructions, or a recipe to follow.  The recipe also told us what ingredients we would need to make this.

Then we got to work.  We added the ingredients...

…and everyone helped to stir the batter.  Round and round, 1, 2, 3. A gingerbread boy I soon will be!

Next it was time to create the gingerbread boy.  We did the best we could!

We took our gingerbread boy to the kitchen because we don't have an oven in our classroom.  We asked Mrs. Hansen, one of the lunchroom ladies, really nicely, if she could please cook our gingerbread boy.  She said YES!  We also asked her to watch it closely because in the story, the gingerbread boy ran away.  We don't think that would really happen, but just in case!

We can't wait to have a special gingerbread treat tomorrow!
