I was looking back through some pictures of last year and this post is another flashback from last school year. To kick off our school's book fair, each teacher selected a book. The teachers decorated their classroom door to represent their selected book. My class choose the book, Pinkalicious, by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann. Some parents asked my why I selected this book (I know they thought that the boys would have never liked this book). To tell the truth ALL of my students loved this book and there is a little brother in the book too. : )
In the book the little girl eats too many pink cupcakes and turns pink. Then she must eat green vegetables to return back to normal. I also used this book to incorporate good eating and nutrition activities, which was perfect because it was the week of Halloween.
For our craft my students made pink cupcakes. The paint was puffy paint I made from equal parts shaving cream and Elmer's glue. Then I added a touch of red paint. The students sprinkled on real sprinkles!! This craft was a hit!
