We started off December, making gingerbread men.

We made our posters and posted them but no gingerbread men.
Our second step was to go for a hunt around the school. We knew that these gingerbread men were sneaky from all the gingerbread books we had read so we knew we had to be very quiet. Therefore, we took off our shoes and tiptoed through the halls.

We could not find those sneaky men so we wrote a letter and went to different classes to see if they had seen our gingerbread men. We heard many stories and got many leads but we still could not find our gingerbread men. We decided to read a different version of the gingerbread man to get some more information about gingerbread men. We read "Gingerbread Baby." We got a great idea from the story. We decided to build our own gingerbread houses to lure the gingerbread men back.
We put yummy icing and enticing candies on our houses hoping that the gingerbread men would find our houses irresistible.
