Eric Carle is one of my favourite authors - not only do I enjoy his stories, I find his artwork to be very inspiring. Each year, regardless of grade level, my class does an Eric Carle unit. We read and respond to his writing and then we do several activities inspired by his art style.
Keeping this in mind, I decided to create various Smartboard backgrounds inspired by his art. These backgrounds can be used behind calendars, text boxes, artwork - the list goes on.
There are 12 backgrounds in total based on such books as "The Very Hungry Caterpillar", "The Grouchy Ladybug", "The Very Busy Spider", and "10 Little Rubber Ducks".
