The Kindergarteners have been doing an author study. The author is Mo Willems. They learned where his books are located in the library and we read Pigeon books, Elephant and Piggie books, and of course Leonardo the Terrible Monster. To become illustrators takes practice, so they tried their hands at drawing Leonardo or one of his "scary" friends! They used the DrawingPad app on the iPads.
First the 2nd graders listened to Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type, by Doreen Cronin. Then they chose a farm animal to pretend to be and wrote their own letters to Farmer Brown. They are upgrading their word processing skills to correctly write a letter, capitalize words, add clip art and print.
