We Love Pigeon! Mo Willems Author Study

May 16, 2014

Do your first graders love Mo Willems?
Mine sure do and we have been learning alllllllll about Mo Willems this week! Pigeon, Elephant & Piggie, and Knuffle Bunny… my students are loving being immersed in all things Mo.

We started the author study on Monday learning a little bit about Mo Willems and then throughout the week we read *almost* all of the Pigeon books (Pigeon Needs a Bath is still en route via Scholastic Book Clubs)!

As we read each book, we complete a bunch of activities to help us dig a little deeper into Mo’s funnier than funny books. I snapped a few pics:
The kids were pretty darn good at coming up with things Pigeon was thinking in “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!”

Then we summarized “Pigeon Wants a Puppy!” ^I just loved this little one’s illustrations!

and in “Pigeon Wants a Hot Dog” we thought of some adjectives to describe Pigeon and provided evidence from the text to support our answers.

Today I thought it would be fun to make our cute little pigeon crafts!

Next week we will be diving into Elephant and Piggie and Knuffle Bunny with more fun!
All of the fun we did above is from my Mo Willems Author Study that I uploaded a few weeks ago:
