To help our students develop their English in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, we invited fourth and fifth graders to participate in our Saturday English Camp last year!
We planned some fun activities to help them build their language through hands-on experiences.
Our theme for fourth and fifth graders was pizza pizza pizza! The teacher shared the pictures and steps for making a pizza with a GLAD narrative input chart as she told the story of someone making a pizza at home. Then kids, in teams, sequenced the pictures and glued them onto a piece of butcher paper. The kids wrote the steps underneath each picture, using complete sentences.
And then, we made tortilla pizzas! These were a staple in my house growing up. They’re so very easy to make! You just need: tortillas (flour), tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, and any other toppings you want. You take a tortilla and spread some tomato sauce on it.
Toast it a little in the toaster oven. Then take it out, sprinkle on the cheese and pepperoni. Toast it some more, until the cheese bubbles deliciously. It’s an easy snack and kids love it!
