How do differing personalities react to situations?

  • Gerald the Elephant is cautious and Piggie is not. They are contrasting friends who find themselves dealing with a number of predicaments.  Student audiences will find themselves making predictions.
  • The two main characters realize they are actually in a play.  At this point, full audience participation is invited, and the ingredients that make a play are explored in song.
  • Author Mo Willems wrote this play from his own books:  I Am Invited to a Party!; Listen to My Trumpet!; I Am Going!; Should I Share My Ice Cream?; I Love My New Toy! and We Are in a Book!

Standard: Participate in collaborative conversations, evaluate point of view and reasoning
