Elephant and Piggie

Now that my daughter is reading, she wants to read all.the.time. No complaining here. I thought I would share with you some of her favorite books. We both love the Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems. If you haven't heard of these...you must check them out. Our public library has all of them and we have officially finished and AR tested on them. Scholastic had them in the last book order the year, so I purchased some to keep at home.

Not only are these book hilarious.....they are so great at teaching students about how to use their voice in reading. Here is an example. 

The whole book is speech bubbles. She knows to raise her voice when the letters are big and in all caps and to lower it when they are small. 

We also love to each choose a character and read the parts. So fun!

If you do not have these books in your classroom, you must get them! They are perfect for end of the year kindergarteners as well as first and second graders! I'll be back soon with another series we just found and love!
