If you don't have any of the Pigeon books you'll definitely want to pick them all up - we do a lot with them in my class - they lend themselves well to creating class books!
This year our Student Treasures class book was "Don't Let the Pigeon Be A Substitute Teacher!" and the kids had to come up with ideas for why it wouldn't be a good idea for the Pigeon to be a substitute, some of their ideas were hilarious!
Here's what it looks like:
Anyways, I thought it was time to make a Pigeon craftivity to honor my favorite character! My daughter came up with the idea of including Duckling as well - he's a little cutie too!
Aren't they adorable?! Now, I love cutesie things like this, but I can't justify using class time for them unless they have a clear connection to some area of the curriculum rather than just "fine motor skills" or "art". So, I had to create some writing prompts as well so I can tie this into our writing time. I put it all together in one file so you can find the templates for the craftivity as well as the writing prompt papers for FREE at my TPT store! Please Rustle Up a Response below if you grab it - I'd love to hear your thoughts!
I'm linking this up to Freebie Friday over at Teaching Blog Addict - head over to pick up some more freebies!
