Mo WIllems Author Study

This past week, we continued reading the remaining Mo Willems books that we checked out from the library. Students also began writing their own versions of Mo Willems books and incorporating the writer's crafts that we've learned. I love seeing all of the speech bubbles, ellipses, bolded words, and UPPERCASE WRITING in their stories!
