Reading Theme Challenge ~ Turtle Splash

Turtle Splash ~ Cathryn Falwell

The book for this weeks Reading Theme Challenge was Turtle Splash!: Countdown at the Pond, by Cathryn Falwell. Emily really enjoyed reading this book and counting the Turtles on each page. I decided to do a turtle craft with Emily that we could use to retell the story. This project turned out to be a big hit!!

Emily painting the egg cartons for the turtles' shells with green, brown and yellow paint. After they dried I cut out foam bodies and glued them to the bottom of the egg cartons.
