Pete's A Pizza Lesson!

It's been a while since I last mentioned anything about our August unit. So just to remind you, last month's theme was food. Mmmm. I'm really hungry right now. Hope I can make it through typing up this post without having to make a kitchen run.

We read Pete's A Pizza (William Steig) for our last lesson. Boy, was this story a hit! If you haven't read it yet (where have you been?), it's about a young boy (Pete) who's stuck inside on a rainy day. In an effort to cheer him up, his parents decide to play a game of pretend with Pete and make him into a pizza! They toss Pete around, cover him in pizza toppings, and bake him in the oven. Calm down. Remember I said it was all pretend.

My students were completely captivated. They especially seemed to enjoy the way I whispered, while reading, what the toppings really were (power, paper, poker chips).

Check out all the photos capturing our reading fun:

Tossing our pizzas.


Look at all those yummy toppings!

Pile 'em on!!

Time to put those "pizzas" in the oven.

Whew! This was a messy lesson!
