The Little Turtle

Little turtle's big adventure (The Best book club ever)

After reading The Little Turtle, we used pattern blocks to fill in his shape and then graphed them by how many blocks we used.
This is an old poem but one of my class favorites!
The Little Turtle
Author: Vachel Lindsay - 1879-1931
There was a little turtle.
He lived in a box.
He swam in a puddle.
He climbed on the rocks.

He snapped at a mosquito.
He snapped at a flea.
He snapped at a minnow.
And he snapped at me.

He caught the mosquito.
He caught the flea.
He caught the minnow.
But he didn't catch me.
