Easy as P-I-E

Woohoo!  Blogging 2 days in a row!  Trying to squeeze in all of the things we have been doing.  I always try to take pictures, but things tend to come up and I lose my train of thought.  I will get better at updating this more frequently.  The rush of a new school year is finally settling down (I hope!).

My students created these cute PIE plates to remember P-I-E (persuade, inform, entertain).  I had different books that the students looked through and then they had to decide the purpose of the book.  Persuade seemed a bit confusing for them.  I had the bright idea since it was Chuck-E-Cheese night for our school to have the students write a quick note in their journals to persuade their parents that they really needed to go to Chuck-E-Cheese.!  Now, they completely understand persuasive writing, at least for now.  We will have to revisit this again later, pretty sure.

I don't have a template for these.  My students did these all by hand using paper plates, crayons, and markers.  It was Pinterest inspired by this {PIN}.  I know it is so much cuter, but I was limited on time.  Hopefully, I'll try the Pinterest one in the future.

Off to finish laundry...Hubby will be home from his deployment next weekend, so I gotta get this place ready for his return!
