We are taking a brief break from our usual writing curriculum to do some more creative writing activities. With our nutrition unit underway, we read a cute book called, "Yum! Yuck!" about a little "Grizzly" baby who wants something else on his pizza. Momma Grizzly tries to figure it out, but all baby says is "That's what I want, that's what I want, that's what I want up there!", pointing to the shelf. (Text to self connection here...I SO relate to the mom's frustration, having 2 toddlers at home!) After reading the fun book, we brainstormed all the words we could think of about pizza. Students wrote pizza poems and published them onto their own slice of pizza.
