This week is show your character week for I Love to Read Month. In kindergarten library class we read Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems. We discussed the pigeon's character and the children decided he was funny, tricky and really wanted to drive the bus! After our discussion, we used Don't Let the Pigeon Run This App on the overhead via my iPad. One portion of this app features Mo Willems giving step by step instructions for how to draw the pigeon. He also explains how to show if the pigeon is sad, cheeky or freaked out by placing his eye in different areas. This kids had a blast drawing the pigeon and many insisted on doing it twice. They did a fantastic job!
For the last three weeks we have been working on fairy tales in kindergarten library class. Thanks so much to all of the parents for reviewing your child's chosen nursery rhyme with them recently.
