Lily's Chocolate Heart
I Like Chocolate

Our first book was Lilly's Chocolate Heart by Kevin Henkes. Mrs. Baker read the first few pages. Lilly wants to save her last chocolate heart, but can't find a good place to hide it. Then we had to think of a good place to put a chocolate heart. We each wrote a sentence telling where we would put our heart and drew a picture of it using Paint. That was fun! Then Mrs. Baker finished reading the story. Were we surprised to find out where Lilly put her chocolate heart! (We think she had the best idea!)

Here are a couple of our story sentences and drawings:


Next we read I Like Chocolate by Robin Pickering. We made a list of all the different kinds of chocolate foods we could think of. Each one of us voted for our favorite using tally marks. Then we graphed our results using The Graph Club. The choices were chocolate cake, hot chocolate, chocolate covered banana, chocolate covered strawberry, chocolate milk, chocolate pudding, chocolate ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate candy bars, and chocolate kisses. Can you tell which was our favorite?
