Book Character Day: Great Ideas for Teacher Costumes


Wow! Book Character Day was such a success! It’s always a challenge to find the perfect costume to fit a favorite book. Time! Juggling Schedules, & Red Ribbon Week~What to Wear on Book Character Day?  These teachers and students always meet the challenge. 


I love the bright crayon costumes.  The Day the Crayons Quit is a favorite book in the younger grades.  There are several great crayon books:  The Day the Crayons Came Home, The Crayon Book That Talked, & Harold and the Purple Crayon.





Pete the Cat is also a favorite on Book Character Day.  I love all the different Pete the Cat books, such a great variety of books.  I love the shoes! So fun!
















 


I love the pig costumes! (So fun with the boots)  I love the different versions of The Three Little Pigs: The Three Little Javelinas, The Three Little Cajun Pigs, & The True Story of the Three Little Pigs








Have You Filled Someones Bucket Today? Everyone needs their bucket filled and what a great bright and fun costume to wear.  Yes!






If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, If You Give a Dog a Donut, If You Give a Pig a Pancake, & If You Give a Moose a Muffin are all great books to use.  I love how each teacher had a food item! So Yummy!






Among the Hidden


Can you see them?  These third children are hidden.  The Shadow Children book series is a great read for older grades! I can’t wait to start this series in my classroom. 


Nonfiction Books are always a hit!
