March 1, 2023, is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day. As a child, I would eat almost anything—cooked cabbage, pickled beets, and liver were all perfectly fine. But peanut butter? I despised peanut butter. I would even give my Dad all of the peanut butter cups from my trick-or-treat bag every fall. (No, I have no idea what was wrong with me.) Today I love peanut butter. I’ll eat that stuff out of the jar with a spoon!
On March 1, take a classroom vote and see who likes peanut butter. It’s a good opportunity to use tally marks and make a simple class graph as well. Barring any allergies, I wonder if you’ll have any students who just don’t like it. Next, have a child complete a copy of this writing page. Then have her refer to her completed page as she writes the directions to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
