It's an Elephant and Piggie Fest!!

I still have my "Grade 1s going into Grade 2" from last year. I think our switch is happening tomorrow afternoon.  So I've been keeping my class busy this week with fun, mostly easy, but hopefully educational activities.

Michelle, my Grade 1 teaching buddy, showed me this cute Elephant and Piggie activity today.  After I read the kids ...


and ...


... we laughed and talked about the books and then they made up their own Elephant and Piggie comic strips.





I pinned the comic strip here, but it originally came from Erin at Adventures in Tutoring and Special Education. So thank you, Erin! I love it.

If you click on the image below it will take you to Erin's google.doc pdf. She has 3 different versions of this ... so cute!


And while I was looking for E&P activities, I found this extremely cute and educational unit. You can grab it by clicking on the image.


Here's a look at the table of contents. You can see how much is in it!


Okay, I'm off to bed. It's Day 3 for me and I'm pooped!

  6. Thanks so much!!! I am CRAZY about Elephant and Piggy. I bought 10 more books for my classroom library this summer and can't wait until we can write our own stories!

  7. This is adorable.
    I LOVE that you have your kids from last year until enrollment gets settled. Our district has 9 days to get enrollment settled - so things are insane for 2 weeks. Keeping your kids from last year for a few days and only take a FEW days to get it all settled is such an awesome idea.

    Hope your weekend is relaxing. :D
