    You could review descriptive writing by having the kids describe their favorite pizza in detail...ingredients, favorite place, who they enjoy it with. Then for the art! A 12x 18 sheet of white paper becomes an Italian tablecloth when you sponge paint red 1x1 checks on it. When that dries the kides build their favorite pizza on an 8 inch round paper with paper ingredients. Then the pizza is glued onto a white paper plate and the descriptive paragraph written neatly and mounted on a placemat. Set the items on the red-checked tablecloth for a yummy display. The only drawback is that it takes a long time to cut out all the pizza ingredients.( It is a great classroom helper project or send home for a stay at home helper to do!)Scholastic has several teacher reference booklets out that combine writing and art.
