Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

Vroom Vroom, Pigeon at the wheel!

 I absolutely love the Mo Willems pigeon series. They are hilarious, easy reads, make kids laugh, but also learn. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus imitates what children act like when they want something really bad. They pry, beg, and say just about anything hoping you'll grant their only wish! This books helps kids relate and laugh. He's begging to drive this bus that the bus driver left and he asks his audience, Can you watch my bus? Oh, and don't let the pigeon drive the bus!

We brainstormed what else could the pigeon dive? Different modes of transportation! We raised our hands and went around and came up with a huge list of different ideas. I made the hand out above. First color in the pigeon with the steering wheel. Then cut out. Glue your pigeon in the middle of the paper. Use a pencil to draw what the pigeon will drive. Color in with crayon! Where is the pigeon? Does it need a sky? Is it driving on the road? Trees? Is it a monster truck? WHere are the cars it's driving over?
