Repost from former students 2016. It's that good!
Gingerbread Mission

By Nolan and Elie

One day, Elie was at Nolan’s house when they saw the mailman. “I’ll get the mail,” announced Nolan.

Strolling to the box, he popped open the lid and saw a flyer for something. The flyer read: “Come to the Gingerbread baking competition! It will be a blast! It is at Marcus Hall on Peach Street at 2:00 P.M. It is on Sunday, June 18th.”

It was Saturday, June 17th. There was no time to waste. Nolan rushed in the house while waving the flyer.

“We should really enter this!” Elie said while reading it. “We are some of the best bakers in town!”

That was true. One time Elie and Nolan entered a cookie baking competition, and the judges were blown away by their creations. They won by using a secret ingredient. The boys were going to use that ingredient for the gingerbread house. They were confident.

“We should start baking right now!” Nolan exclaimed. So, they started planning.

They got a ride to Buck’s Market from Nolan’s mom. At the store, they got the ingredients. Plus Nolan’s mom got some groceries. Back at Nolan’s house, they started baking. Gingerbread and frosting went flying as they baked and baked. Then they put in the secret ingredient. After an hour, Elie said, “I’m tired.”

“Good,” said Nolan. “because we are done!”

“Great! But it will melt if we don’t put it in the refrigerator,” Elie noted.

“Right!” concurred Nolan.

They put the gingerbread house in the refrigerator and they went away. Elie was sleeping over, so they got their sleeping bags unrolled and quickly fell asleep.

The next morning, they were very excited. It was Sunday, June 18th, and it was time to go to the competition. They went to the refrigerator. Then it happened, and they saw it...

  1. @ Mrs. Yollis & class,

    Here's my ending I hope you like it!

    The next morning, they were very excited. It was Sunday, June 18th, and it was time to go to the competition... When they looked in the refrigerator all they saw were crumbs. "Who did this!" Nolan screamed "I don't know?" Elie answered curiously "What are we going to bring to the competition now!?" Nolan said sounding concerned "I guess we won't enter..." Elie announced to be continued...

    How would you rate this it was a movie?


  2. Dear mrs. Yollis and class,

    Here is my ending
    when they opened the fridge door there was the gingerbread smashed and the boys screamed "NO!" "The contest is today"Nolan said sadly "we better make a new one fast and make it to the competition" says Ellie. They quickly made a new gingerbread house and went to the contest it wasn't as good as the other one but the judges seemed to like it. They didn't win but they are kind of happy because they can eat the gingerbread house they go home and eat the gingerbread house.

    Do you have a good ending?

    1. Dear Hana and class,

      Thank you for reading and commenting on this post!

      Hana, your ending was great. I like how you mentioned that Elie and I made another gingerbread house that wasn't as good as the other one. It was very realistic.

      A quick shoutout to Lily, who also had a great ending, and I would give you 10 out of 10 if it was a movie, by the way. :)

      I can't wait to see any other make you own ending comments! I love these stories.

      Mrs. Yollis is an amazing teacher, and I'm sure you guys can agree. Happy Holidays and have a good break!
