Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Encourage your students to take time to be silly this week and find fun and humor with their family. Author Mo Williams purposefully creates simple drawings so children can use them as inspiration in their own drawings and storytelling adventures. Encourage your students to draw pictures of characters and add thought bubble dialogue. It is an excellent way to practice writing and have fun together.
