Turtle Theme

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a fab Monday.

Today I’m reading, “The Town of Turtle,” by Michelle Cuevas. Art! Art! Art! and a great story too. How would you like to live in a dark shell? Well, Turtle did not and in this story he builds himself a new world inside his shell. If you have a place to read your story under a sheet (maybe a sheet or sheets over two tables) read it there.

When reading this story please show the pictures and then revisit them after the story with the class. Give each student a large sheet of white paper and instruct them to draw a new world for their shell. Give the students tape to place their pictures under the sheets.

Make two shells

Cut on the green line

Tape or glue tips together on each shell

Glue or tape both tabs together to make one full shell

Cut out turtle head and glue to a Popsicle stick

Place stick in shell
