Little did I know how popular of an extra credit project this would be. Thinking that maybe ten kids out of my sixty sixth graders would bring in a pie, I vastly underestimated the power of food as extra credit. We had over half the sixth grade class bring in a pie today. Needless to say there were lots of leftover pies in the teacher's lounge at lunch and the wonderful person who runs the cafeteria was just a tad annoyed with me and all the sixth graders who came down and asked to use her walk-in refrigerator. Oh well. It was a fun project for one day - that I may never do again - or at least amend next year so that I don't have so many leftover pies to deal with.

So fun! I love that the kids got so into it.ReplyDelete
That star pie is gorgeous! How creative.
And now I'm hungry for pie, haha.
What a great idea! You sound like a very fun teacher-combining food and reading. My two favorite things!ReplyDelete
Oh, how fun! I wish I had these sorts of experiences when I was a kid. Granted that was twenty-five years ago, but still! I, and my friends, would have loved doing this. And that last pie is so pretty!ReplyDelete
What a fun idea! Pie for all!ReplyDelete
This is a much better activity than the usual book report. :)ReplyDelete
Wow - I am super impressed with the participation and with the idea as well. Good thinking, good teacher!! That last pie is gorgeous. I'll bet at least half the kids will think of the book the next time they see pie.ReplyDelete
What a hoot! I love how happy all those kids and pies look!ReplyDelete
well, maybe you need a little pie control.ReplyDelete
or more people to eat them!!
I would have loved to have had you for my sixth grade teacher :)ReplyDelete
This is wonderful! I think that you should do this again next year, because you see how it motivates the children and that is what it is all about, right :)ReplyDelete
The school system needs more teachers like you. You make going to school fun!!! I'd do it again next year if I were you, maybe putting the kids in groups though.ReplyDelete
omg i would have loved to have been at this event. pies as far as the eye can see. love it!ReplyDelete
