Back in the fall I spotted a great product on Pinterest that I absolutely HAD to have! Created by The Peanut Gallery, the Book Buffet looked to be a super-fun way of presenting a book report.
We set up the projects at individual desks, I put on some restaurant music to set the mood, told my kiddos to grab a writing "utensil", and they spent nearly an hour and a half (I kid you not!) "tasting" each project. The best part - I was able to circulate at the same time and I got every project marked!!
Take a look at what they created:
|There was pizza.|
|And MORE pizza!|
The breakfast foods HAD to include Timmies... we ARE Canadian, after all!
During the writing stage, the students used my "Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then, Finally" graphic organizer for summarizing.
