Knuffle Bunny Lovin'

Spring is the perfect time for some Mo Willems lovin'! Especially if your class is not allowed to do anything "Easter Bunny" related, this would be the perfect way to get around all of that, but still do something Easter Bunny just plain bunny related! Plus, these books are the absolute BEST! My kiddos are in third grade, and they still absolutely LOVE them. I am so glad that we did not have time to complete the entire unit last year because now I get to pull Mo back out and they will be thrilled!

Here are some things that we did last year right around Easter! 

Caldecott Worthy Illustrations and Judging

Our Classroom Winners…

Trixie Traits {Character Profiles}

A Little Cause and Effect....
Which I am thinking about revisiting! We could use a *little* more work on this skill! 

During this unit, we also focused on dialogue and quotation marks. The kiddos created their own "scene" from their own story. 

Now for the best part of all....

Knuffle Bunny Glyphs!!!! 

Here is how our glyphs turned out last year! This was a great way for the kids to review data collection and learn a little about their classmates.

    I was just thinking about this book and how I could incorporate it into an "Easter" lesson without it actually being "Eastery". LOL! I pinned it and now blogging about how I can't wait to use it! :) Thanks for sharing!

  8. I'm soo behind! I always hear about Knufflebunny and want to buy a book, but when I get into B&N the book aroma gets to my head and I completely forget what I go in for. Now I really have a good reason to pick up the book when I move back home to Indiana. Way to create an awesome unit. :)
