May 2nd - May 6th
It has been so wonderful inviting Mo Willems and his books into our classroom. We have loved getting to know Pigeon,Duckling, Piggy and Elephant. We started our unit by exploring Mo Willems' website and we learned so many interesting facts about his life and how he came to be a writer. We learned that his daughter Trixie inspired the book Knuffle Bunny. We thought it would be fun to have our very own "knuffle bunnies" join us in class for the week, and see what adventures we could take them on. We also read a couple of Pigeon books and thought he was a very silly character. After reading Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, we talked about whether we thought Pigeon should get the chance to drive a bus. After some discussion we decided that he doesn't have a license or hand to hold the wheel, so it is probably better that he stay off the road:)
Please visit Mo Willems' website with your children. It is really worthwhile. http://www.pigeonpresents.com
We are looking forward to a groovy book fair throughout the week of May 16th! Students will have the opportunity to shop during a designated time as a class. Additionally, students are welcome to bring in money and shop the book fair as early as 7:30 starting May 17th as well as independently during their recess time. Peace, love, and books.
