I can't think of a better way to learn about animals and insects than with literature written for kids.
Eric Carle and the books used in this packet are a terrific "springboard" for teaching reading and writing strategies and skills.
The packet focuses on 6 of Eric Carle's stories.
Each story has writing, word work, comprehension and critical thinking activities to follow the story.
Vocabulary cards are colorful and can be used in a center, posting or read the room.
A craft accompanies each book using paint, sponges, water colors and tissue paper. The crafts are simple and perfect for posting on bulletin boards or writing.
Many of the stories also contain informational text and graphic organizers for recalling the information and then reporting.
A Skill Center is also available for each animal or insect based on a language skill.
The packet includes information on Eric Carle and an opportunity for students to create a class book on their favorite stories.
If you are doing an animal unit in the near future this packet is perfect for your class!
