Back to School with No, David!

My students always LOVE reading all of the No, David books by David Shannon, and I came up with a really fun activity for them to go along with the books... a puppet!  It's the perfect activity to introduce classroom management at the beginning of the school year!


I included 10 different writing options... perfect for all of the elementary grades:
  1. David’s Body – without any text
  2. David’s Body – with Name/Date on arms and room for an illustration
  3. David’s Body – with large primary writing lines and room for a picture
  4. David’s Body – with medium primary writing lines and room for a picture
  5. David’s Body – with small primary writing lines and room for a picture
  6. David’s Body – with writing lines and room for a picture
  7. David’s Body – with large primary writing lines, no room for a picture
  8. David’s Body – with medium primary writing lines, no room for a picture
  9. David’s Body – with small primary writing lines, no room for a picture
  10. David’s Body – with writing lines, no room for a picture
You can pick the writing paper that works best for your students, or pick multiple papers to differentiate!

There are also additional writing pages available for each of the levels so that your students can attach multiple pages on their puppet! 

It also has two options in terms of the thickness of lines... As far as the line thickness, I like to use thicker lines with my Kindergarten students so that they can color in the lines easier, and in the past I’ve used thinner lines with older students so that they don’t assume you’re giving them a “baby” coloring page!
