I chose the book Enemy Pie by Derek Munson as the next mentor text. This story is about a little boy whose dad encourages him to spend the day with his enemy, Jeremy Ross, while his dad makes a pie. . . Enemy Pie. As the boy spends time with Jeremy, he realizes Jeremy is a great kid. The two have fun together and the boy begins to worry about the pie his dad is making. His mind starts to go crazy with "ideas." He thinks about all of the disgusting things his dad is putting into the pie.
As with any of these lessons, it is important to use the vocabulary over and over. We want it to stick.
I hope your students enjoy this activity. Mine always do. They get a little gross, but they love it!
