Mo Willems Author Study: Knuffle Bunny Glyph

On Saturday, we had our Preschool Awesome Authors class.  This week, we focused on Mo Willems.  We had so much fun!  We ended up reading three of his books in class.  One of which was Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity.

After reading and discussing the book, each child created a glyph.  I think that glyphs are so much fun to create and it is a great way to try to have kids show their individuality.

Here are the materials that I used, one per child:

  • One circle for the head
  • One circle for the body
  • Four long ovals for the paws
  • One nose
  • Two Ears
  • Four inner ears, two pink, two blue
  • Eight circles that can fit into the paws, four pink, four blue
  • Two eyes
  • Black marker
  • Glue Stick
  • A Copy of this, Knuffle Bunny Glyph

Starting out…

We all followed the directions together.  I made sure that each child had a copy of the glyph instructions, so their parents could see what we did.  I love how all of the Knuffle Bunnies look alike, but a bit different depending on the thoughts and opinions of each child.

They turned out really cute and the kids loved them.  My daughter even tried to sleep with hers that night! I will be posting more of the activities that we did throughout the week.  Enjoy!
