Elephant and Piggie Comic Strips

Mo Willems is our author and illustrator for April!  His hilarious stories are a perfect fit for our emerging readers, and even more advanced readers are tickled by the whimsical repartee between Elephant and Piggie, or between Pigeon and Duckling.

Each child applied their own humor to create a silly mini-story or comic strip in the Mo Willems way.  I found these wonderful comic strip templates in a great teaching blog, found here.  Each child did a fantastic job coming up with their own silly story--we used our "brave spelling" (phonetic spelling), along with correct punctuation and capitalization.  I felt this was a great way to use those higher order Bloom's Taxonomy thinking skills (synthesis, evaluation, etc.) in a silly kindergarten way!
