Studying Mo Willems' Craft

My Growing Writers inspire me daily!

We learned how to be craft detectives - paying careful attention to the choices that authors and illustrators make that help make their writing and illustrations so special. 

Here is an anchor chart we created while spotting Mo Willem's choices.

It makes me SO HAPPY and PROUD that my young students are spotting (and using in their own writing) motion, bold words, speech and thought bubbles, and onomatopoeia!
