Pizza book report : Five Nights at Freddy’s : The Silver Eyes
Has this ever happened to you: You learn a new word, and you wait for the right moment when you can use it properly in a sentence? And when you do, doesn’t it feel very satisfying? I had a similar bee in my bonnet about a pizza book report. When I first came across photos of pizza book reports on the Net, I knew I was going to have my son make one, but the book would have to be pizza-related in some way. The right time came when we downloaded Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes for Kindle from Amazon.com.
Based on the popular horror video game Five Nights at Freddy’s, the book tells the backstory of the unexplained disappearance and/or murder of about 20 children within the premises of Freddy Fazbear pizza restaurants from 1983 to 1987. Well, at least, it’s one backstory, as my son clarifies. Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes is not canon, despite being co-authored by the game’s creator, Scott Cawthon, with Kira Breed-Wisley. Apparently, the book is an Alternate Continuity, whatever that means in the Five Nights at Freddy’s universe.
For Motito’s pizza book report, we cut two 12-inch circles: one out of illustration board and another out of white card stock. The illustration board circle was going to be the pizza and the card stock circle would contain the text of the book report. The pizza would consist of six slices to correspond with the six parts of the book report: Setting, Characters, Plot, Problem, Resolution, and My Favorite Part of the Book. The text slices would be pasted on the box and lie underneath the pizza slices. Lifting a pizza slice would reveal one of the six parts of the book report text. The idea was to leave the pizza slices free of print or text, so we could re-use them for another project if we needed to.
Creative book projects are double the purpose for half the time. They combine language arts and arts and crafts in one go. Sometimes, it becomes a teachable moment for something extra. For this pizza book report, I got to review Motito about circles and diameter. He constructed the circles himself and used a protractor to divide a circle into six equal parts.
I haven’t even started to tell you how much my son loved making his pizza book report. Motito is a big fan of the Five Nights at Freddy’s story, more than the game itself. He took the initiative to research various logo art for his pizza box and spent the whole afternoon working on the project that he almost skipped snack time. Yet another proof that time flies when you’re having fun. Even better when you’re learning, as well.
