Miss E read The Chocolate Touch as part of her Literature/Vocabulary lessons.
She imagined what it would be like to have a magic touch. If she could have a magic touch she would want it to be chocolate, too. We worked together on a little writing assignment.
I also found a novel study from teacherspayteacher. For a novel study I thought this was pretty good. It was a little bit challenging for Miss E, but we had good discussions after every chapter.
Our FUN activity was to make chocolate bars.
|Ingredients: chocolate, fun marshmallows, rainbow star sprinkles.|
For the chocolate bar we just melted about 1 cup of mini chocolate chips in the double broiler. I laid out some wax paper in a small Tupperware container in which Miss E put in a few marshmallows. I then poured the hot chocolate over the top and then she added more marshmallows and sprinkles. She was not patient enough to let the chocolate cool before she started digging into her creation. This was the best part of both kids' week.
