My Library à la Mo

The school year is finally winding down. The students’ last day was Tuesday; I’ll be done next week.

One of my favorite activities was my Caldecott unit with my second graders. We finished it with not a moment to spare at the end of the year. It consisted of reading lots of Caldecott books and checking out the different media used by various illustrators, then zooming in on Mo Willems and the Knuffle Bunny books. Finally, we tried our hands at creating art like Knuffle Bunny. Here are some of my favorites.


p.s. Yes, that’s me in many of the pictures. At least I’m smiling, not shushing!

p.p.s. I highly recommend the Scholastic/Weston Woods videos of Knuffle Bunny and Knuffle Bunny, Too. Narrated by the real Trixie and Daddy! And also an interview with Mo Willems.

p.p.p.s. You know there’s another Knuffle Bunny coming this fall, right? Knuffle Bunny Free!
