We have just
finished spending an entire month studying Chocolate and reading
Chocolate Stories. The students learned where chocolate comes
from, from what countries, and interesting facts. I read aloud “Chocolate
Fever”, “The Chocolate Touch”, “Cat Chocolate”,
“Cam Jansen and the Fudge Mystery”, “The History of
Chocolate” and “A Big Block of Chocolate”.
As we are
a split class, the Grade 1s did “Beginning, Middle, End”
strategies, using Chocolate Fever, with either a grade 2
or a parent scribing. A few students wrote on their own. The
Grade 2s wrote in their journal whether they wanted to have
Henry Green’s Chocolate Fever or John Midas’ Chocolate
Touch and why.
the students took part in the O.R.E.O. Cookie Challenge for two
days, an M&M Counting time and O.R.E.O. sculpting with their
buddy class (grade 5/6). For our final event, we went into the
kitchen and made chocolates. YUMMY!
