Story & Craft Time: We Are In A Book By Mo Willems

I've had great fun recently organizing a local
Story & Craft Time to share with others.
A local homeschool book store has generously
allowed me to use their space.

Mo Willems is one of our FAV-O-rite authors!!  
So, I declared "Mo In May" as this month's theme. :-) 

This past week we gathered together to enjoy 

"We Are In A Book!"

(This post contains Amazon affiliate links. See my disclosure here)

and make our very own Elephant and Piggie paper plate stick puppet story props

After our story props were completed
we then created and acted out our very own
adventures with Elephant and Piggie.

These printables were a great help!

Comic Strips from Adventures in Tutoring and Special Education.

Pigeon has lots of printable coloring and activity sheets

We used a couple from the Elephant and Piggie Event Kit

Specifically we used page 21 to help guide our group story.

Then the kiddos continued on creating their very own unique stories to share with the group.
I was very impressed with the creative adventures these 3-7 year olds came up with to send E&P on!  Including them heading to an amusement park, a mall, ballerina dancing, and even meeting the big bad wolf and three little pigs! :D

WATCH OUT Mr. Willems!
 I know a few budding authors who may become good competition for you ;) ;)

The almost absolute best part...?!?

Days later I received this picture from a mother of one of the kiddos that attended the class

Stating she believed her son really enjoyed himself
 because she found a new character on her fridge.


My kiddos even engaged in creating some new E&P adventures later in the week.

Just tooooo cute I tell ya!
