Enemy Pie

 In 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade we visited and listened/watched the book Enemy Pie by Derek Munson. What a great story!! Everyone agreed that serving Enemy Pie to your enemies really works!! After the story, we enjoyed some Enemy Pie ourselves! You can find the recipe here.

Two Bad Ants

In 2nd grade library time, we read Two Bad Ants by Chris Van Allsburg, and learned about inferences and a little bit about perspective. We learned that inferences are a conclusion a reader draws from the text based on their schema and various clues in the story. Then we wrote some inferences and made these ants!
