Fall into fun with Storybook Character Day!

I am beyond excited for Storybook Character Day!

There are 2 main reasons I am so excited!

First Things First

I created this Common Core Aligned, 
Storybook Character Day unit 
and I am really excited about it! 
I cannot wait to spend an entire day talking
about characters - interviewing characters - comparing characters
- learning about new characters - and reading lots of really great books!

Click on the picture below to find it in my TPT store

It includes an easy to use parent letter
with two options
 Plenty of sheets for the students to write about their character

 An interviewing sheet that is appropriate for primary grades

and several different reflection sheets for the students to 
write about what they learned on Storybook Character Day!

I also provided a list of the standards that this unit ties into

Storybook Character Day is going to be a lot of fun!

The Second Reason 

I am SOOO excited.. is because 
I am going to be dressing up as my favorite character as well!

My favorite Character is Lilly - from the Kevin Henkes books

I searched the internet high and low to find a picture of a costume to get ideas. The best one I could find was this one from a play. If you click the picture it will take you to the article about the play! It is pretty interesting!

so being a thrifty lady (I wish) - I headed to the Goodwill
and I found this purple purse for $2!

Then I got to work this morning creating a headband with ears and a crown, but
I need more white felt - so the pictures of that will be posted once it is done!

Now for the big debate! I want to paint my old cowgirl boots red with a yellow star. 
My Husband thinks I am a crazy woman and says no.
I need your support on this one! Should I do it?? I am thinking about going to the craft store today to get paint! I feel like I will wear them more each year dressing up as Lilly, than I will wear them as they are now! (I had to dust them off before I took this picture!)

So that is all I have for now.. 
but if you missed the pumpkin freebie yesterday, make sure to check it out today!
Happy Sunday!
