Today was full of sweets!
We started by sequencing the steps of making an ice cream sundae.
The kids did all the work and I ate all the ice cream.
Okay, okay- eventually I decided to share...  ;) 
I mentioned last week that my school is focusing on one Thinking Map each week {school-wide}. This week we focused on bubble maps. As my littles slurped up their yummy snack, they created a bubble map to describe their sundae's characteristics.

You're sure to score mega cool points with your little people when you bust out this activity!
I was the coolest teacher ever- the kids said so themselves.
It's true. Kids never lie.
The sweets just kept coming! 
We also made Author Purpose PIEs.
My sweet teamie found a cute pin that got me thinking and tweaking.
Here's what I came up with.
You'll need 2 paper plates for each student.
Students color the interior of one plate brown or orange if they want a pumpkin pie
Then trim the edge off the other plate and cut it into quarters.
Glue the titles to the bottom side of the plate.
Then attach each quarter to the colored plate.
Tape was the easiest so that each flap could still be lifted.
Glue the definitions to the interior of the pie slice.
