Grouchy Ladybug, The Robber and the Foolish Tortoise! More fun with Eric Carle

Monday, April 22, 2013


Here are our Grouchy Ladybug clocks. The wings are made from a small paper plate painted and cut in half. Click this link for a Clock face and hands


On the back is a simple time story: 9:00 the aphids say “We love leaves”. At 10:00 the ladybugs say “We love flowers.” At 11:00 “We love aphids!”


At 12:00 “We love you!”


This was a fun literacy center activity. The children wrote the words, drew more bees, colored the bear and traced and cut out a bee hive.Slide5


Here is our literacy center activity for the Foolish Tortoise! My Kiddos traced the shell cut it out colored the turtle added the famous Eric Carle sun with a face and wrote about the tortoise.
