Week 8 PBID Question

Several students have shared how helpful the second graders were in answering questions these past two weeks. I'm sure there will be some first and second graders who know this one right away, but I'm wondering if there are some older students who remember reading about this guy. We'll see!

Who are the two characters that live next door to this dog?
BONUS: What is the dog's name?

Week 7 PBID Question

The second graders proved to be a valuable resource for last week's question. A number of first graders caught me in the hall to say that the second graders helped them find the answer. Nice cooperation! Let's see how helpful those second graders can be again this week!

What is this man's name? 
BONUS QUESTION: What is he yelling?

Week 6 PBID Question

It has been cold here in Wisconsin this past week. It has also been raining a lot and last night it even snowed! In the middle of October! (Which is early even for us here in Wisconsin.) Everything is soaked. Which leads us to our question for week 6 of the Picture Book Identification Tournament.

This girl didn't just come in from the rain or snow, and she didn't fall in a lake or a puddle. Why does she look all drippy?

(If this is a tough one, you might want to check with some second graders.)

From a question about a  man in a hat to a question about a boy wearing a crown. Where should we go next? Hat ... crown ... How about shoes?

Week 4 PBID Question

Last week's question was about a hat, so I thought we'd take the next step: from hat to crown. That sure is an impressive crown worn by this young king, and he has a spectacular scepter to match! But our question isn't about his crown or scepter. It's about this king's commands. 

This young king declares that a specific activity should start.
What is that activity?
