Crazy Pizza Day

Our new words are chef, spatula, sprinkle, and spread. The words come from the book Crazy Pizza Day. Ask your child what each word means, and if they don’t know, explain the meaning to them or show them an example. Here are easy definitions to use.


A chef is a cook in charge of a restaurant kitchen.


A spatula is a cooking tool used for spreading or mixing. Spatulas have wide, flat blades that can bend easily.  (You can show your child one if you have it at home).


To sprinkle is to drop or scatter in small bits.

Spreading pizza dough

To spread is to open or stretch out.  Ask your child what he or she would sprinkle or spread on a pizza if they were a chef. If you have a spatula, use that to pretend with.


Thank you!
