Having Fun in Children's Literature Class

Spring, 1999

These fun activities helped students to extend the reading of books
into other modalities.

Dr. Suess' book, The Foot Book, was the inspiration for this fun

Eric Carle's book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, inspired this
activity.  Students colored a segment and painted it.

The last activity was based on Eric Carle's book, Little Cloud.
These blue and white drawings are reminiscent of Carle's simple
blue and white cloud drawings.
For a day the students became illustrators!
