Elephant and Piggie Pack!

If you are a lower elementary teacher and haven't heard of Elephant and Piggie yet, you have to dash over to your nearest book store and pick up a few copies for your classroom!  If you are a Mo Willems fan, and own every book he has ever written (please tell me I'm not the only one), then you adore Elephant and Piggie, I'm sure!  I forget how much firsties LOVE Piggie and Gerald until I pull the bin out for the first time and read just one.  They are instantly hooked and cannot get enough of the dynamic duo!  My kiddos are allowed to pick them as their look book when they go book shopping and the bin always sits empty week after week!  I have about 15 copies of various titles and they are always rotating through from kid to kid.  You should hear the barganing on shopping day..."I'll trade you this Elephant and Piggie book for yours."  Stinkin cute!!

Since I already have a Mo Willems' Fun with the Pigeon pack in my TPT store, I figured I should give Elephant and Piggie the same kind of love.  : )  I just posted an Elephant and Piggie Pack to use as extension activites after you have introduced these pals to your kiddos.  Click on the picture below to go directly to the Elephant and Piggie party!  : )
