Pigeon Party! Author Study Pack

This pack has been a work in progress for months! I am so happy it is finally finished! Each month in my classroom I focus on a different author. Here are some of the authors we have done in the past:


Now, obviously these weren't all done in one year. I have so many favourite authors that I rotate through different ones each year. There are some favourites that I try to do every year though. Like this particular one:

Mo Willems is always a class favourite! His books are so simple and so funny and always a hit with the kiddos! I have complied a bunch of my favourite activities for a Mo Willems author study into my new pack: Pigeon Party!

This pack includes 84 pages of activities to go with the Pigeon books, Naked Mole Rat, Elephant & Piggie books, Knuffle Bunny books, and more!

For the Pigeon books there are favourite book graph, favourite book response, persuasive letter writing, making ten math centre, labeling, venn diagram, bubble maps, tree maps, hot dog list writing, don't let the pigeon... writing, pigeon craft & writing, and an emergent reader!

For Naked Mole Rat there are a craft & t-shirt design, tree map, and emergent reader. For the Elephant & Piggie books there are tree maps, bubble maps, favourite book response, venn diagram, and an emergent reader.

For the Knuffle Bunny books there are a setting writing activity, labeling, bubble map, tree map, and text-to-self connection writing. Then there is a Cat the Cat rhyming activity, a favourite book response, and a movie/book compare & contrast.

There are so many activities to keep your little ones excited and engaged in a Mo Willems author study! Tons of reading and writing activities, with a little math thrown in too! Check it out at TpT by licking on the picture below.


  1. Thanks for sharing this! I think that this will help encourage kids gain more interest in books and develop good reading habits. Author study makes books more fun and encouraging. This pigeon party author pack will be a great treat for kids. :)

  2. LOVE the pigeon books! We read Mo Willems every year!
