Creating Picture Books

The extrememly creative author, Mo Willems, has written several books starring his beloved creature: The Pigeon. 
I did an activity with my students where I read 3 of his Pigeon books to the class.  Then I separated the students into 6 groups and they created their own Pigeon stories.  Some of the more creative titles the kids came up with were: Don't Let the Pigeon Fall in Love, Pigeon Wants to Travel, and Don't Give the Pigeon 10 Dollars.  The pictures below show what the writing process looked like.  
On a side note, the illustrations were quite simple for the kids to do.  I even drew a few on the board so the kids could copy them.
