Read Yertle the Turtle
Give each student one sheet of paper with ten turtles (I have each turtle in a rectangle -- they will cut on the line of the rectangle). One turtle is bigger than all the rest. Nine are the same size. Students color the turtles and number them 1-10 (the biggest turtle is #10). They can also draw a crown on the big turtle. Cut the turtles out and glue onto a 18" x 6" strip of construction paper (each turtle on top of the other). Write "Yertle the Turtle" at the top. Modification: If your students cannot write numbers yet, give them the turtles with the numbers all ready on the them and have them sequence the turtles -- one on top of the other.
