ERIC CARLE STYLE DIGITAL COLLAGES ON PIC COLLAGE

Use the app Pic Collage to create an Eric Carle inspired digital collage using the web search and clip tools. This digital collage activity makes an engaging companion to an Eric Carle author study, read aloud, or paperless art project in the elementary classroom.

Scaredy Squirrel Freebie

Scaredy Squirrel, we love you! We've spent the last week looking at a variety of Scaredy books. Well, not Halloween or Christmas, but all the others! Like most 6-year-olds, my class adores these books. Before we read the birthday party book I had my kids predict what they thought Scaredy was afraid of this time! He's such a silly squirrel.

There are so many willing to visit with our classes if only we ask. Once I started…
