Earlier in the week, the children brought in puppets that they had made with their families. They LOVED showing them to the class and telling the class what the character might say.
Today each of our children came dressed as their favorite Kevin Henkes character. They were soo-o-o excited!
Finally we were back in our room to watch some of the movies of our favorite Kevin Henkes books and ate some cheesy snacks. "Wow. And all she could say was, 'Wow!'"
