|We just finished our third week of our Eric Carle unit with The Very Busy Spider. |
Such a simple little story but they love it!
|Of course, if Gail Gibbons has written a book on a subject, I want it!! |
Her books are simple and full of facts just right for this age level.
|We charted our spider facts and tried to be as specific as possible!|
|We added our art work to the writing for our Eric Carle book. |
Next week we will add our final page to the book as we study The Tiny Seed.
|I used an Alabama die cut for them to label where EXACTLY they live!|
|I got these pages from Musings of Me and her wonderful unit that she is making for each state!|
|I LOVED the directed drawings in this unit and will definitely use this unit again next year!|
|Cut a sheet of copy paper into thirds. Fold almost in half but leave a small strip at the bottom to fold UP.|
Students are given a baggie with the matchbook sheet and a cut
up sentence that they have to piece together.
|They glue the sentence inside the book and then write it themselves.|
|They write their name on the small flap and illustrate the cover.|
|I think I will use this as a go to activity during our fairytales unit. Stay tuned!|
