We made gingerbread cookies with our students, rolling out the dough and everything. Students went to their "special" (Music) and when we went back to check the oven for the cookies, they were gone! :) We looked everywhere and didn't find them. We found clues like flour trails from
our classroom to the lunchroom. Tomorrow we have a sheriff's officer coming to "take a report." We are hoping the cookies show up by Friday. Somehow I think they will. :) I love teaching first grade!
