|We looked at a Google Map that had been created for the GRA13 to see all the locations around the world where schools were participating. Our students were VERY excited to see Memorial School on the map!|
|We watched Eric Carle himself read The Very Hungry Caterpillar.|
We did what good readers do when listening/reading stories: We looked at the front and back covers of his books and made predictions before hearing the story. We also made predictions during the story. Did you know that good readers are thinkers?
|We also learned how Eric Carle makes his illustrations - by painting tissue paper and then cutting it out to make collages. Our students enjoyed making art like Eric Carle at the Eric Carle Library Center|
