It’s an Elephant and Piggie Fest!!

Inside: Free Elephant and Piggie comic strip template

Updated post from 2012 to 2022.

Many Septembers ago my Grade 1 teaching buddy showed me this cute Elephant and Piggie comic strip template (you can read about it below).

ELEPHANT & PIGGIE BOOKS

Before my students started creating their comics,  I read them Watch Me Throw the Ball and I Love My New Toy by Mo Willems:

We laughed all the way through, talked about the books afterwards, and then I put them to work making their own Elephant and Piggie comic strips.

ELEPHANT & PIGGIE COMIC STRIPS

We used a template which originally came from Erin at Adventures in Tutoring and Special Education, but I can’t link to her anymore because her blog is now private. But thank you very much, Erin! I love it.

If you click  below you’ll still be able to grab Erin’s google.doc pdf. She has 3 different versions of this … so fun!

Here’s a sample of the comics my kiddos created. They loved this project and were all extremely eager to share their comics with the class.

 

And while I was looking for more elephant and piggie activities, I found several extremely cute and educational teacher guides, activity sheets and event kits for all of Mo Willems’ books

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. 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!

  2. 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. 😀

  3. Thanks so much!! I cut out the comic strip sections, pasted them on cardstock tents, and used them as food labels for my preschooler’s Elephant and Piggie party. It was easy and turned out great.
