The Hungry Thing  by Jan Slepian and Ann Seidler

After reading The Hungry Thing by Jan Slepian/Ann Seidler, my students practiced their rhyming skills by feeding magnetic foods to a large Hungry Thing poster. We took turns pretending to be the Hungry Thing. The students had to figure out what food the Hungry Thing was asking for and put the food in his mouth. For example, when the Hungry Thing asked for pananas, we fed him bananas! A picture of this activity is on our website.

Next, we read How to Make Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman. After listing all of the ingredients from the story, my Kindergarten students worked together to write a recipe for “Hungry Thing-Style Apple Pie.” Later in the week, we made real apple pies with the help of one of our parents.
