Pizza lesson plan:
Lesson: Fractions /sharing equally for younger ages
I did drive up pick up at Target for our Pete the Cat book, it was $8.99 for the hardcover. However, there are multiple read aloud versions on YouTube, if you don’t have/want to buy the book. Also really any kids book on pizza would work.
Read Perfect Pizza Party to your children, explain alliteration to your older ones.
Cut white circles out of printer or construction paper and have the kids color their pizza crust, sauce and cheese.
Next cut out of construction paper all of the very silly toppings from the book. Use different colored paper, or draw, color and cut out your toppings. Now re-read the book and with each page, glue on the topping mentioned. Have the kids read aloud the tongue twister with you. Let your craft dry, and have the older kids fill out their pizza fraction work sheet. Again lots of free printable are available online, you don’t have to write up your own.
Spiral Pizza Bite Recipe
1 can refrigerated pizza dough (crescent dough will work in a pinch)
1/2 cup of pizza or marinara sauce
Parmesan cheese, for topping
Dry Italian seasoning
My tip for these pizza spiral bites is to work quickly. The refrigerated dough becomes harder to work with the warmer it gets.
Fun fact, this recipe came about because my oldest has started the braces process and on the “cannot eat” list is pizza crust. Doesn’t seem like a big deal right? She can still have the best part of the pizza! Well she was crushed and I was determined to find a way she could still enjoy pizza without having to give up the crust. Enter these spiral bites which are super soft and safe to eat. Not to mention super versatile. Fill these with any topping combinations you like and you’ll have a fun kid approved snack.
