National Pie Day

Can there REALLY be a National Pie Day? Why, yes, of course! I stumbled upon this by accident and thought it was too funny. National Pie Day is January 23rd. There is even a pie council!

(I love pie. Cherry pie is my absolute favorite and if you live anywhere near Marble Falls, Texas then you've had the AMAZING pies at the Bluebonnet Cafe!)

Well- why not incorporate some pie things into our Wednesday? I thought we could write our own pie recipes and share with the class. I have two different titles for our recipes.

I also thought we would read Enemy Pie written by Derek Munson. The author has a website here dedicated to this book.

If you aren't familiar with this book it's about a boy who is having trouble getting along with the new boy in the neighborhood. His father suggests making Enemy Pie. It's great for teaching ways to make new friends and get along with others.  If you have a subscription to Tumblebooks it's also read aloud on their site.

I'm still brainstorming and I hope to post more ideas tomorrow! 

Have a great National Pie Day Eve! 


  1. I had no idea there was a National Pie Day. Thank you so much for sharing. What a fun day for your little darlin's.

  2. This is so much fun! I bet my fifth graders will have a ball writing their recipes. I am pontificating on what they will include as ingredients...

  3. WOW! This looks like a great idea. And, I was just telling a teammate that my kiddos aren't very motivated to write...maybe this will be just what they need. :)

  4. I love the Bluebonnet Cafe. My great grandparents are buried in Marble Falls, which doesn't have a grounds crew to clean the graves, therefore we go up twice a year to take care of the sites. Sorry squirrel moment. We always go to the Bluebonnet Cafe, and usually sit with some friendly folks we obviously just met. You MUST try the peanut butter pie! It's my Favorite (taste like Peanut Butter Cups).
