Krabby Patties!

Christina over at "Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge" (one of THE BEST blogs evuh!) is having a little linky party to help pass the time from now until Spring Break go by a little bit faster (mine isn't for SIX more school days)!
 I picked Hilary over at Rockin Teacher Materials to show some love to. She shares fan-tab-u-lous ideas on her blog. Go now and check her out by clicking on her button below.

My kids love SpongeBob SquarePants, so anytime I can hook them into an activity with anything SpongeBob-related, I do it. When I saw these candy Krabby Patties at Walgreens, I grabbed them up!

We have been working on reading informational text to determine the connection between steps in a procedure. So....what's that got to do with Krabby Patties, you ask?
I asked my kiddos to pretend they were SpongeBob  and had to train me to make Krabby Patties. 
I gave them each a pack of the Krabby Patties so that they could see the different parts. Then they wrote a paragraph on the steps in making a Krabby Pattie. They did a fantastic job using time order words.

Of course, they got to eat the Krabby Pattie when they finished working with a partner to edit their work.
I taped another one to their work for them to eat later as a reward.

You know....sometimes it just has to be all about the candy. :)


  1. Oh my goodness! First of all I didn't know SpongeBob was still so cool? It is one of my LEAST favorite kid shows...I have to admit! But I LOVE how you incorporate something very interesting and motivating for your kids to inspire so written work! Oh Krabby Patties as a muse...I never would have thought of it! Brilliant!!!

  2. Yay! Thanks for linking up! I LOVE this idea... I recently found out my 3rd graders can't sequence! They would love this!!!
