As much as I gripe about my job, being a teacher is probably one of the most rewarding/creative jobs there is. Let me ask you this. Have you had a gingerbread man run away at work lately?
After I read the story of the Gingerbread Man, my class made cookie dough and wrote about how to make a gingerbread cookie. My kindergarteners baked small gingerbread men for them to take home and I made a big gingerbread man for all of us to share.
After the pan got back from the cafeteria, the one I made wasn’t on the pan. He ran away like in the story! We spent a good week looking for him – with sightings reported by the maintenance men, the cafeteria staff, and middle school teachers. He even left an after school announcement. And sent me a text message letting me know where he stayed for the weekend.
|He's back!! And so much fatter than before...|
So cute. They were SO excited when he came back. I really do love my job!
