  2. Congrats on 100+ followers! After reading the pigeon books, I have the students work in small groups to brainstorm ideas they have for new pigeon books. My students usually come up with things like: don't let the pigeon play on the monkey bars, don't let the pigeon read the pigeon books, don't let the pigeon chew gum, etc.

  8. WE usually do some type of activity either whole or small group. They like to design posters advertising the book to share with the class. Each child gets to include their favorite part from the book to share on the posters too.

  9. You can use them to teach so many things. But, one of my favorites is to use the Pigeon books to teach about the four types of sentences (questions, statements, exclamations, and commands).

  11. I've done lessons before with the Pigeon books where we categorize the sentences based on the ending punctuation. (periods, question marks, and exclamation points) Then we practice using the correct punctuation at the end of our sentences in our own writing. Super cute!

  16. For the past 4 years I have been an instructional technology teacher, but next year I will be teaching first grade. So, I'm thinking that I would use them for punctuation and alternate endings... who knows!! The possibilities are endless!

    1. Oh, I just saw that we needed to say what we teach! I would teach about reading with expression since Pigeon has so many emotions in one book!
