The Little Cloud

Little Cloud, by Eric Carle

I always like to make connections to literature.  So me made our own little clouds.

Our Little Cloud

We got out the shaving cream--and we started to create!  We did this outside on a plastic table cloth--but it could easily be done in the classroom on laminated paper!

Dragon Cloud

The Little Cloud turned into a dragon!  I think this could make a great classroom book--and you are even using the sight word little.


  1. I'm embarassed to say that I'd not heard of this book. I love Eric Carle. How did I miss this?! I love this idea and I'm pinning it!

    1. Now I'm really embarrassed because I spelled embarrassed wrong...Yikes!

  2. Just FYI: a friend of mine did a shaving cream activity with her kiddos and one got shaving cream in his eye. Well, that led to us looking for another option and we found whipped cream! Yup it works:)

  3. never heard of that book. will have to look for it. love to do the shaving cream thing though. gets the tables cleaned for free.

    Come check out my new blog/classroom. love to have new visitors :)
