This week in the library, Grade 1 students collectively agreed that “Pigeon has to go to school,” and drew cartoons of him using circle eyes; long, rectangular necks, and triangular beaks. One big fan of the comical bird even gave him punky hair! What does Pigeon like to eat before Thanksgiving? Pizza seemed a logical answer, as written in one of Willem’s legendary word bubbles. A reading of the title book Pigeon has to go to school led to a predictable outcome. Why does he want to go there so much? All predicted that the best reason was to enjoy the ride there on the legendary bus! Mrs. Etta will follow up with more bird-friendly books in the library as we approach Thanksgiving. Perhaps we will give Mr. Turkey a special holiday break!
