more National Pie Day stuff

Yesterday I posted about January 23rd being National Pie Day. I thought it was too funny so I've decided to do a whole pie themed day. We're going to create a pie recipe, read the book Enemy Pie, and discuss why writers write. 

I apologize for posting these additional ideas so late in the evening, but I'm not feeling well and spent most of the afternoon sleeping on the couch! We've been working a lot on planning our writing before we write so I created the planning page below. Click to grab your copy

On the National Pie Day website you can find pie making tips. I thought it would be fun to see what the kids tips are!

I searched the Guiness Book of World Records for largest pie and found that 

We'll be measuring just how big that is!

Have a Happy National Pie Day! 


  1. LOVE that book-one of my new found favorites. Our 5th grade teacher has "pie day" on March 14 (3.14-get it;) and I am going to tell her she has to read this book to her big kids-they would flip. Oh, the creative writing that could spring from that!

    Love it!

  2. I think we should get this day off of school. Is there a petition I can sign?

  3. I love the idea of celebrating National Pie Day!!
    I've never read the book Enemy Pie. I'll have to check it out. Have you ever read Sweet Dream Pie by Audrey Wood? It's awesome!

  4. What a great way to practice how to writing. Love your simple but adorable sheet. Think it'd be hilarious to see what some of them come up with!
