Chester's Way - DIY Story & Craft
Chester's Way as inspiration for our class. I found this great printable from Live Oak Media that had lesson plan ideas and discussion questions.
For our craft I decided to keep it simple and had the kids make "disguises" like Chester, Wilson and Lilly wear in the book. I had little mouse faces that I got at the dollar store and the kids drew their own disguises on them.
Then I pulled out what I thought would be the exciting part. I had mustaches for the kids to have their own disguises. Sadly they were less than excited. But as you can see from the photo, my teacher's helper and I were excited about the mustaches. ;-) Oh, well... not every idea is a home run. But that is ok.
