Check out how cute my Reading Pizza turned out. I made it out of construction paper and yarn. I love it when it works out this nicely. I introduced it in a large group and my students then used it during centers.
The concept is pretty basic. As the children read words from a text they add pepperonis to represent the text. If they begin to think or make connections they add a green pepper.
Head over to The Schroeder Page to read more about how I am using it in my classroom. You can watch a video and preview my Reading Pizza File.
