We had the Munschies! (Robert Munsch book study!)

Hi y'all!  I have been SO out of it the past few weeks.  I must apologize and thank all of y'all for sticking around!  We've had crazy weather, complete with a snow day----get this---with NO SNOW!!!  Today, we left with snow on the ground, and came home with windows open in the car.  Add in a special (now) SEVEN year old's birthday party this past weekend.... I'm BEAT!  (and there's no stopping-cause we have Easter and then my soon-to-be THREE year old's party/birthday in April!

I want to just share with you what we've been up to.  I L.O.V.E. Robert Munsch.  If you have never read one of his books, you need to.  My kids were so engaged and having fun, that we turned it into a 2 week deal!  We worked on Problem/Solution with every book.  We created 2 class books in response to 2 stories and we also wrote our own "how to" stories complete with some onomatopoeia (that I also turned into a book to send home for families to share and read!)!  We also completed 2 different math activities (I'll post about later, since I forgot to snap pics of it!!!)  However, my favorite thing that we did was make a "photo book" of his stories!   (I'm holding on to these to have out for our Open House in May.  They are just THAT precious!!!)  Take a peek at some of the cuteness!

Did you know that if you write to him "he" writes back?  Last year, he sent a story where he put in the kids' names into the story!  I photocopied it for each student to have as a special keepsake!  (NOTE: make sure they write their names NEATLY---or they won't be included!)

 I have uploaded this packet to TPT.  Click here to read more about it!

Thanks again friends, for keeping with me!  Your emails and comments really do mean the world to me!  Leave me a comment about your favorite Robert Munsch book below and I'll pick a few winners to have my set!  All that I do ask is that you follow my blog.  I'll announce the winners on Thursday night!
