Our district has been doing intercession for the past two years during our fall & spring breaks(we now get 2 weeks off for each). This year I was about to teach (the extra money is a perk!). I also was able to select the theme...and I thought Eric Carle would be great with the diversity of his books!!
The fall session consisted of K-2 students. I had each group for 45 min. Day one we looked at examples of Eric Carle's work....and painted the background & tree branch paper. On day two the painted the leaf colors. We used found objects to print on top to create patterns/textures. On day three we took all the components and created our branch pictures.
