This is a fun alternative to the traditional Gingerbread Man hunt that so many kindergarten teachers have used to orient children to their new school. Using the traditional chant of, "We're going on a bear hunt", students will join in looking for a class teddy bear in different areas of the school. My chant refers to "walking on marshmallow toes", an idea I found in several different places on the internet. I like to hide our bear several times in different areas the first week, instead of doing it all at once. At the end of the week we find teddy bear cookies in the principal's office and go decorate our bears with candies!
