Pick My Pie is a Descriptive Writing Contest that is PERFECT for teaching adjectives in grades 3-5. Your students will NEVER forget what an adjective is after this unit!
You will lead your class on a one week adventure of pie descriptions! After researching menus and reading about delicious desserts, your children will craft a paragraph about their favorite pie. At the end of the unit, each student will read their paragraph aloud to the class. Then, the class will vote on the best sounding pies. If your school allows, have a Pie Party! The winners can bring in their pies for all of the students to sample.
