Fletcher Students Create Art Based on Author Eric Carle’s Book

Fletcher Elementary School kindergarten teacher, Judy Haskin, combined her students study of author Carle and family involvement. During the month of June, the class did a study of the famous author’s books. Mrs. Haskins and her class read his books and compared and contrasted them including writing a book report on their favorite book. Students also completed an art project based on his books, using the same techniques Mr. Carle uses when he creates his illustrations.  As a culminating activity, the parents were invited into the classroom where students presented songs and poems related to Mr. Carle’s books and shared their book reports.
