Cats, Cupcakes, and Story Retelling!




I just posted these little story retelling pieces to my TpT store if you are interested!  I hope you'll check it out!  I thought I'd see how these go before posting the ones I have made for the other books!   My kids really enjoyed these when we did our Laura Numeroff author study.  I printed my story pieces on cardstock, laminated them, then attached magnets to the back--and the kids used them to retell the story on my magnetic white board!  I also kept them in my "Story Retelling" station choice basket along with the book for the kids to do as a choice for buddy reading or independent reading!  

I am working really hard on my first author study/unit:  Pigeon Perfect...{Mo Willems!!!!}  It is looking super cute, but it is taking me *for-ev-er* to finish!  I don't know how some of my favorite teachers out there create these 80 page units--after working on this one, I now know just how much work goes into putting them together!!!  :)

I'm so glad you're doing a unit on Mo Willems!! I loved doing an author study on him last year and my kids absolutely loved the pigeon books and the elephant and piggie ones too. Can't wait to check out your unit!! :)

Very cute! My kids love using pieces to retell a story. I just started a new blog and would love to have some followers so I can get some feedback :-) As the year goes on, I'll hopefully get more followers and be able to post a lot more! Your blog is wonderful and has a TON of great ideas!!

Thanks for sharing! I LOVE that you are doing a unit on Pigeon (and Mo Willems!). I have a stuffed Pigeon that is going to be my "traveling buddy" next year, and I would love some more ideas to introduce Pigeon to my kinder kiddos. Can't wait to check it out!

I love Mo Willems and CANNOT wait to see your unit. You have sooo many creative ideas. Your blog was the first one that I found a couple months ago! I have done sooo many of your activities and feel like a whole new teacher. I just started my own blog...after seeing all the other ones out there, but haven't figured out how to upload pictures of the things I am doing yet...or sample pictures of the units activities that I have created. I am sure it takes time...but I wanted to say thank YOU for inspiring me! :)
