Let's Create a class book

 

Show the class the video Eric Carle: Picture Writer (Searchlight Films, 1993) in which Eric Carle gives a hands-on demonstration of tissue paper painting and collage illustrating. After they watch the video, have students create their own Eric Carle-type pictures using tissue paper, tempera paint, and markers. Use 6-inch, pre-cut squares of tissue. Have children paint or draw on several sheets to create new colors or textures. Remind them that each sheet of tissue should have a design or pattern that repeats over the whole piece of paper. Allow to dry overnight.

In journals or on a story map form, have students plan stories about their pictures. The final drafts may be written on a computer or with pencil and paper.  Final drafts may be evaluated using the narrative rubric.

 I found a website for Eric Carle the author/illustrator of this book.  Your children may enjoy a visit, especially to the Frequently Asked Questions section where Eric talks about everything from what his favorite color is to how he makes his pictures.  It's written in a very friendly "voice" that my 7 year old and I both found appealing
