grade class read Lily's Chocolate Heart by Kevin Henkes.
We discussed why Lily would want to save her chocolate heart.
The students arrived at the answer that chocolate is so good and
she wants to save it! Agreeing that chocolate is delicious, we
taste-tested 3 different types of chocolate treats. We tried
chocolate chip cookies, brownies and Hershey bars. Then we voted
on our favorite chocolate treat. I used Excel to make the graph
since we do not have kid-friendly programs at this time. We then
wrote about chocolate. We had to complete the sentence "I wish I
could eat chocolate covered ______ because ______." Students
then illustrated their work. We shared our ideas about chocolate
covered treats with one another.
