Details, Details, and More Details!

My kiddos are doing a great job with thinking of stories and putting them on paper.  We have been working on adding details to our pictures these past couple of days. On Friday we read a House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle.  We talked about how the hermit crab didn't like his plain shell so he added "details" to make his shell more interesting.  

After reading the story I drew a large rectangle on the easel. Then I invited each child to come up an add a detail to the rectangle to make it into a house.  They did such a great job coming with different things to add.

When we were done we wrote about our house.  I forgot to take a picture of what we wrote but we wrote "The dog is chasing the cat. They are running around the house."
