Mo Willems Elephant and Piggie paper bag puppets - great craft to make in library and have students practice retelling or create their own dialogue

three little birds: Elephant and Piggie Party.

Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems! Comic Strip Printable Activity - My students love the elephant and piggie books. When we have library time I see them trying to retell the story in their own words, acting it out with puppets, or stuffed animals, and requesting a read aloud. I used the graphics from Mo Willems to create a few simple story outlines for the kids to create their own story. The students loved this idea and came up with some extremely creative stories.
