Over the last couple of weeks we have been reading a series of Eric Carl books. We learned that Eric Carl is a very talented writer the mostly writes about animals or nature. He is very descriptive and brings his stories to life for his readers. We have been working on comparing some of his characters and we have been writing our own animal stories this past week. Like Eric Carl, our first graders are very creative and descriptive in their writing as well. To top it all off, we went to see an amazing black light puppet show today at the Folly Theater. Afterwards, the puppeteers came out and showed us how they made the animals look so real.
