Eric Carle’s Mister Sea Horse! These are toilet paper rolls with tissue paper seahorses glued on. Inside they have seahorse facts!


This year we made a new project for Mr. Seahorse! Here is the cover. Inside we sorted “Cool Seahorse Facts” and “Opinions”. We created this activity to go along with our readers workshop unit “Powerful Partners” which my whole K team is using written by Kim Adsit. It is Amazing! The picture below shows how my kids sorted their facts.

Powerful Partners


The next step was to take the information they learned and write about seahorses. Then we glued it to the back. These activities were all completed during literacy centers. I did have a parent volunteer help with the reading of the seahorse facts.



The Very Hungry Caterpillar Retell! This fun activity is in my Going Buggy Syllable and puppet pack. This year we made craft stick caterpillars for our retell.



After actually two fun weeks with Eric Carle we put all our activities in this pocket with Eric Carle’s picture. He is sure an amazing author!


Here is a picture of many of the activities we did. Here is a picture of Eric Carle that you can use for any activities you create.
