Final Product- "The Lonely Fish"


Here is another book created during our Eric Carle Author Study!


If you're new to Miss Woodward's Class, learn about our Author Study here, and our book making herehere, and here.

In Mister Seahorse, Eric Carle uses clear pages printed with seaweed and rocks, to "hide" fish illustrations behind it.  This student wanted to recreate that feature, so I provided her with transparency pages and permanent markers.  During the writing process, she really thought out how she wanted to incorporate these clear pages.  I love how her story turned out!  Enjoy!

The Lonely Fish


"One summer, the fish was very lonely.  He wanted to see what was behind the seaweed."





"It was a fish! "Hi fish, can you play with me?" said the fish.  "No," said the other."


"Next, he saw a big rock.  And he wanted to see what was behind the rock."



"It was a crab! "Hi crab, can you play with me?" said the fish.  "No," said the crab."


"Then, he saw some coral.  He wanted to see what was behind the coral."



"It was a seahorse.  "Hi seahorse, can you play with me?" said the fish.  "Yes," said the seahorse."


"The seahorse played with the fish.  They saw a shark."



"Then they quickly swam behind a rock to hide."



"They saw beautiful coral and seaweed."


"The fish and seahorse heard their moms calling their names.  So they went back home."


"When the fish went home, he told his mom and dad about his adventure, and he wasn't lonely anymore."



This student has struggled with English proficiency all year, so it was great to see her write this story with little assistance.  I also love how the illustrations with the clear pages turned out!

Until next time,
-Miss Woodward
