A month or so ago, I posted one of the lessons I did with kindergarten on an Eric Carle lesson. Typically, I do a different book for each of the classes. This Eric Carle lesson is from The Honeybee and the Robber.
Doing a different book with each class allows us to explore more books and keeps the lesson more fresh. It does take more planning, but totally worth it when you see all the pieces on display.
As with most lessons like this we are really working on our cutting and gluing skills. The honeybee picture was my favorite this time around. The kids were so proud of their work.
For this lesson we had one day to paint the big papers. I give each table a color to paint, and we share the painted papers. Then, we had one day to cut and paste the flower and draw out the grass. On the third day we cut and put together the honeybee. We need a little more time from one more class to finish up the details on the honeybee.
