Eric Carle Week

A few weeks ago, we had a mini Eric Carle unit in our Kindergarten classrooms.  Our science focus was objects in the sky:  clouds, the sun and stars, the moon.  

The Grouchy Ladybug

We put words that begin with /g/ on one side and end with /g/ on the other.  

Draw Me A Star

We had a mini lesson about drawing a star using dry erase boards.

Then we cut triangles out of yellow and orange paper.  We counted each color and found the total!

Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me

We watched the video of the story.

Then we practiced making stars, and had a great following directions lesson!

Little Cloud
It Looked Like Spilt Milk

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

We watched Eric Carle read the book (here) and later in the week we watched the animated version.

How Eric Carle made The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Then we created The Very Hungry Student book from a template found at Teaching Heart.
