Kevin Henkes Centers

The students had an incredible day last Friday dressing up as their favorite Kevin Henkes character and rotating through fun centers. They played Kevin Henkes bingo and showed off their knowledge about Kevin Henkes as an author, his characters, and his books. They watched an animated version of his books and enjoyed some "cheesy" snacks. They went to the "Lightbulb Lab" and used their imagination and creativity to create letters, puppets, and much more. They made purple purses and wallets, decorated ties, and made movie-star sunglasses (inspired from Kevin Henkes' book-Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse). The students had a blast and it was so nice to see the students being so creative! We ended the day with students performing their scripts of a Kevin Henkes book in front of our class. They practiced turn taking, using loud reading voice, using intonation, and taking on the role of the character. It was a super "mousey" day! Kevin Henkes Centers on PhotoPeach
