So a while ago, I confessed my obsession with the Pigeon books. Read about it here and here. And...if you are a Mo Willems fanatic like me, you know about Elephant and Piggie. Mo is a genius. He is hilarious. He is my students' favorite author. Elephant and Piggie have made my non-readers, readers. Talk about amazing! Today (yes we are still in school) we made some Piggies and Geralds and paired up to read some Elephant and Piggie books. Here are some pictures I snapped of the fun!
|Here are just a few of the titles.|
|We did a character study of Piggie and Gerald for one of our Reading Workshop mini lessons. We added words to describe both Piggie and Gerald. My kids thought I had Mo sneak into our classroom to draw these. Heeeheehee!|
|We free-handed some Geralds and Piggies. Aren't they cute? Not so sure about Gerald's ears, though. They look more like horns, don't they?|
|Then we read elbow to elbow and knee to knee (EEKK). Piggie reads the pink speech bubbles and Gerald reads the gray speech bubbles. Adorable!|
