Movement: Toly the Turtle by Debbie Hasbrook

Telling a Turtle Tale:
Using a large piece of paper, ask the children to tell you what might happen when Toly comes to shore. Write down all of their ideas, even the silly ones.

Create the book: Take two pieces of green construction paper and three pieces of white paper. Staple all papers together and cut out a turtle shape.


Next: Give each child a sheet of paper, crayons and ask them to draw a picture of Toly coming to the beach and what might have happened.

Write out the story as children dictate it to you and attach to the back of the picture.
