2012 Eric Carle Celebration

Today was Eric Carle Celebration Day!  The children enjoyed working with some of the books of this beloved author as they revisited the stories that they have come to love this last month.
To start the morning we donned out caterpillar shirts and ate some pancakes to celebrate Eric Carle's book, Pancakes, Pancakes. 

Then it was off to make hungry caterpillar necklaces to go with one of our very favorite books, The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Then we made hats to go with the book The Very Grouchy Ladybug. Did you know that ladybugs are insects and they have six legs?

Next we used tissue paper, just like Eric Carle does!  We used the tissue paper to make a seahorse, just like the author did in Mr. Seahorse.  This was a new Eric Carle book for us.

We finished our celebration by talking about all of the books that we have been reading.  What an awesome day!
