llama, llama in pajamas...

We really love the llama, llama books. There is something about llama, llama and all his drama that keeps us smiling! If you have not read them yet, they are a "Must Read" for this age group!  On Thursday, October 7, 2011, we joined hundreds of Kindergartners all over the country in hearing the book "llama llama Red Pajama" written by Anna Dewdney. We were trying to help set a new world record. Mrs. Kendryna, our principal came in and read the book to us. We love to help find the rhyming words. After the story, we brainstormed all the different types of pajamas we could think of...blue pajamas, pink, orange, yellow, green, polka-dot, hearts, stripes, plaid, etc. Then we got a llama in pajamas template, some markers and a few crayons and got busy designing pajamas. We are using the pictures we created to make a HUGE class book that we can read and share all year long. Take a look at the fun we had and the wonderful creations we made:

We don't know if we set a world record for the number of students hearing the same book on the same day or not, but we sure had fun trying! ;-)
PS..click here to go to YouTube see and hear the author, Anna Dewdney read llama, llama Red Pajama!

My kids too love llama, llama books. They just leaving reading llama, llama books every night in their favorite pajamas. Recently, I got them a new pair of snuggly cotton pajamas from SleepyHeads.com. They had really great collection of kids pajamas. A soft pair of pajamas and llama, llama books, this is all what kids are fond of.

Hi,
I used my Elmo projector to make an outline of llama llama and made copies on the xerox machine on 11x17 paper. Hope this helps.
