We read Enemy Pie by Derek Munson. The book is about a young boy who was teased by a neighbor boy, Jeremy Ross. He puts Jeremy on his enemy list. His dad tells him he knows how to get rid of enemies for good.....bake an enemy pie! Read the story or ask your first grader what happens in the rest of the story. This story is a great way to see how friendships can be created.
My first graders created a list of yummy ingredients and a list of disgusting ingredients they would put in an enemy pie. They glued their list of ingredient choices along with writing how many of each ingredient they would use (What a great informal assessment on numeral formation and number order).
Finally, they completed their enemy pie posters by using the many colors in our scrap box to make an illustration of their pies!
Great job first grade artists!
