    An idea I borrowed that I used for Open House displays both writing and art. After much practice the students write a descriptive paragraph describing their favorite pizza. To display them I use a 12x18 sheet of white construction paper. Using a small square of sponge (1"x1"), sponge paint with red so the paper looks like a red-checked tablecloth.(Good parent helper job 1:1 while you are teaching). Later, give each student a 6-7" circle of tag board and have lots of paper ingredients available for them to paste on their favorite toppings. It takes quite a while to get them looking yummy. Cutting the toppings is a good parent helper job too. I made sliced olives using a black circle and a hole puncher. Glue the finished pizza on a paper plate and glue at the top of the 12x18 paper tablecloth turned vertically. On the lower half of the paper put the final copy of the descriptive paragraph mounted on a contrasting piece of construction paper. It makes an interesting, tasty display. You could also have a large bar graph chart available that evening listing several pizza flavors. Each visiting guest could color in a square to indicate their favorite pizza flavor too!
