If You Give A Mouse A Valentine!

 This week my teaching partner, Mrs. Robson had the students write a story called If You Give  A Mouse A Valentine...  These books were inspired by the many Laura Numeroff books, such as  If You Give a Pig a Pancake, and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

What made these books extra special was the unique twist Mrs. Robson added to the illustrations.  Each student coloured their mouse and then she laminated them and added a piece of velcro and a ribbon to each one.

This allowed the students to be able to move their mouse or "main character"from page to page.   The students were thrilled with this novelty and were happy they didn't have to spend so much time do detailed drawing of their characters.
