The "Hook"

Hide the various books around the classroom by Eric Carle that will be used to go with the writing unit. Have students search out the books. "We're going on a book hunt!"

Pre-Writing Activity & Writing Activity


The students will choose one of the Eric Carle books found within the classroom for a read aloud. Students will join in with the reading as soon as they recognize the repetitious pattern.


Each student will have a sentence strip model of a sentence from the book with blank lines for them to fill in. They will then use the model to write 3-4 sentences on their book pages.
