Eric Carle is by far one of our favorite authors – AND he’s a fantastic artist! We recently decided to do a complete author/artist study, and I wanted to share the amazing resources I was able to find while scouring the internet. I hope you and your little ones enjoy this author study as much as we did!
- Great interview with Eric Carle
- Generic author study printable/downloadable template
- A simple YouTube search found lots of Mr. Carle’s books read aloud (many title which we do not currently own).
- How to paint like Eric Carle tutorial. (This was a huge favorite with my little ones!)
- A fun Eric Carle-style craft idea
- You can create your own copywork pages using this list of quotes from Mr. Carle and this free worksheet generator.
- Fantastic list of Eric Carle coloring pages!
- A healthy, edible way to enjoy Mr. Carle’s art!
- This is a super fun tissue paper craft idea, inspired by Mr. Carle’s artistic style.
- This blog post inspired me to do a nature study scavenger hunt based on Mr. Carle’s books. We went on a nature hunt and made a game of hunting for all the insects we could based on his various works, and then studying them and drawing them in their nature journals. What fun!
If you have any other resources or experiences to share, please comment. I’d love to hear from you!
