Stories That Go Nowhere (Circular Stories)

Today we learned about circular stories, which are stories where the plot comes full circle, and the story ends as it began. Just for fun, I threw in the book “600 Black Spots” at the end to discuss circles in a more literal way, and lead into the art project.

Books:

“Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes” by Eric Litwin

 

Oh, Look!

“Oh, Look!” by Patricia Polacco

Our art project was inspired by the book “600 Black Spots” by David Carter. I gave the kids circle cutouts and implements to make circles, such as a stamp and a hole puncher. This process-oriented project yielded some amazing results.
