Eric Carle Author Study



                                Celebration Day Cupcake Cake of  The Very Hungry Caterpillar
                                      
For the past several weeks, we have been enjoying many of the books by our favorite author, Eric Carle. Reader's and Writer's Workshops have been busy with reading, retelling and responding to his books. The class favorite has to be "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" followed by 'The Grouchy Ladybug" and "The Very Busy Spider." Each of his books includes wonderful lessons that the children understand in Eric Carle's special way of telling them. Last week we celebrated his books by having "Eric Carle Author Celebration Day" and there are still so many books that we still have to read. For homework, students were invited to make puppets of their favorite book and present their retelling to the class. Here are few pictures of the puppet retellings that have happened already and pictures from the past few weeks.

This was such a creative and fun day for the kids! Who would have thought of having all these activities to celebrate an author? James has been telling me interesting tidbits about Eric Carle that I never knew, and it's very interesting. Thank you!
