ETA: I would be remiss if I didn't give credit to the creators of that beautiful gingerbread house. Art teacher Luke Bussuener was chief architect and 4th grade teacher Barb Handa was in charge of exterior design.
The Gingerbread Mystery
By Jane, Claire P, Kelly and Sophia
Mr. Szudy and Ms. Allen’s classes went on a gingerbread baby hunt. We all had fun finding the clothes for the gingerbread baby outside in the woods. We had to use clues to find the clothes. We had to find the gingerbread house to end the gingerbread hunt. We had a great time!

Mr. Szudy and Ms. Allen’s classes went outside to hunt for the lost gingerbread baby. We helped the gingerbread baby find her clothes. We helped her get back home too. There were clues to help us find things in the woods. We found one pair of mittens, one hat, one pair of boots, ski goggles, a scarf, three buttons and one belt. And best of all we found the gingerbread baby’s house under a pine tree. We had clues to find the gingerbread baby’s house too. We put the gingerbread baby back inside the house. The house had lots of candy and food on it. We had lots and lots of fun on the outside adventure.

Last December we went to the Crestwood woods and had a gingerbread hunt. We had to find all the gingerbread baby’s clothes. We were in groups of four. We looked in the woods. We read clues. We looked up, we looked down, and we looked left and right. Most people found their gingerbread baby clothes under trees. We all met at the end in the classroom circle in the woods to look for the gingerbread house. We found the gingerbread house under a pine cone tree! There were 22 gingerbread babies having a party in the gingerbread house. We put our gingerbread baby in the house. It was really fun for us.
