Polacco, P. (1992). Chicken Sunday. New York: Philomel Books.

Miss Eula Mae Walker is a very special person in Stewart, Winston, and Patricia’s lives. The three children really want to buy her a bonnet, but they don’t have enough money. When the shopowner thinks they threw eggs at his window the three children have to come up with a ingenious way to both prove their innocence as well as buy the bonnet for Miss Walker.

Curriculum Connection:
* Great for teaching math with 5th graders. In the book, the children called the Sundays Miss Eula took them to church and made fried chicken “Chicken Sundays”. Students work to figure out what items they can buy for a Sunday dinner. Details on this website:
* Visual-spatial and Writing: 2nd graders plan out eggs they are going to decorate, using KidPix or Pixie (drawing programs). Then they decorate hard-boiled eggs using white crayon and watercolor paints according to their plan. After finishing, they write a short description of their egg to be put on display, including why they choose those colors, what their design means, etc….

Grades: 1-3
