Laura Numeroff Author Study

Hey Guys,

So I just completed another author study, a Laura Numeroff Author Study Lap Book, Interactive Notebook, and Flip Book to be exact. This unit is great for any who loves the  If You Give A... books.

I created components similar to my Eric Carle Author Study, but of course I changed up the activities to align with each book.

Mo Willems Author Study- Interactive Notebook, Lapbook, Flipbook, and More!!!!

So Ms. Snyder (one of our kindergarten teachers) did my Eric Carle Author Study Unit with her students. She said they loved all the fun interactive activities. She asked if I would be willing to create a Mo Willems Author Study Unit for them, and of course I gladly accepted!!! I never really read many Mo Willems books and didn't know much about him. I mean I glanced at the Pigeon books, but never really thought twice. So I was on a mission to learn any and everything about this great author that I obviously missed. I mean you can't create an entire Author Study Unit on someone you know nothing about. So I went to our school library and grabbed every Mo Willems' book known to man. I read, read, and read some more! Then, it dawned on me, I couldn't believe what I was missing out on. His books were hilarious and just plain AWESOME!!! I fell  in love with his books, his style of writing, and was finally ready to take on the task of creating an amazing Mo Willems Author Study Unit!!! 

So here's what I came up with. If any of you have ever seen my Eric Carle Author Study Unit then you have an idea of what to expect in this unit. But I have of course added new, creative, and exciting interactive activities to go with some of Mo Willems most popular books.
