Can you tell how much I really enjoy this time of year. We are in full swing to Spring in our room. Our caterpillars arrived last Wednesday and already they have doubled in size. We are learning all about butterflies and plants and Earth day too. Everything seems to be occurring all at once. Our caterpillars from insect Lore arrived last week, they have tripled in size already. This picture was taken on Friday. They are much bigger than this now.
To start I've been reading a few of my favorite books to the class. You can all of these on Amazon. I really like the Seeds of the Milkweed. It is a fun, repetitive text that builds. The book was created by a second grade class.
We are also working on writing our own versions of the life cycle of the butterfly. We are writing to picture prompts and then will assemble each page into a book.
This week we are also planting green beens and learning about ways to protect the Earth- We are so busy and the week is only half over. If you have other books about caterpillars and Butterflies, please share with me. I'm always looking for new books.
