PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you're a fan of Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie books, you'll enjoy this set of materials where you and your students will discover so much about this author's two most unlikely friends.

The books themselves are at a text-level of first grade, but the concepts about relationships and life in general are big and universal, regardless of age. (My own 4th and 6th grader still love and laugh at these books!) All the discussion questions and thinksheets are open-ended to accommodate a variety of skill level. In some cases, there are different versions of thinksheets. For example, there's a simple character map (perfect for K/1) and then another character map that asks students to provide evidence for their thinking (perfect for 2/3).

In this Elephant and Piggie Pack, you'll find many ideas that support the higher-levels of thinking and communication required by the new Common Core State Standards:

- 19 Thinksheets (asking students to compare, contrast, recall, connect, evaluate, and more... all in kid-friendly language)

- Suggested Discussion Questions for 6 Titles (asking children to develop logical arguments, critique characters' actions, and more... also in kid-friendly language)

- Readers' Theater Scripts (providing opportunities for the development of comprehension and fluency)

- Ideas for an Elephant and Piggie Party to culminate your study (including activities that support reading, writing, listening, and speaking)
