Diary of a Wimpy Kid

 The fifth book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, The Ugly Truth, was released today.  My students cannot get enough of the Wimpy Kid.  Each of our library's copies of all four Wimpy Kid books, in English and in Spanish, has a hold list a mile long.  Bunches of students pre-ordered The Ugly Truth through our recent book fair.  So I figure I'd better do as the Romans and get wimpy.

Begin by re-imagining yourself as a wimpy kid.  Visit the Wimpy Kid website's Wimp Yourself page to create an image of your inner-wimp.

 Get the Book 4 Event Kit to get several printable Wimpy Kid games including a Secret Word Game that works like Scattergories.

Students can make their own comics online at Make Beliefs Comix.  Then, find worksheets that correspond with the series at Scholastic.

To get started reading right away, go to Fun Brain where the original Diary of a Wimpy Kid book is available to view online.

If you need a snack after all of that fun, get inspired by these Wimpy Kid cupcakes at Momma D and Da Boyz.
