Caterpillars and Butterflies- Oh My!

We are anxiously awaiting our shipment of butterflies from Insect Lore.  Our PTA generously purchased a kit for every class in our school.  Our entire school will be able to experience the wonderful world of metamorphosis.  For the next two weeks we will be learning all about caterpillars and butterflies and we will continue to learn about plants too.

To start, we will be reading a variety of books. Which can all be found at Scholastic
butterfly books for kindergarten, butterflies, caterpillars

We'll be watching Peter Harry's Video Butterfly, Butterfly and a few others too.

Of course we will be making a Butterfly Life Cycle Headband.

We will wear our headbands when we perform the song Caterpillar Caterpillar.
It is a pocket chart poetry set from
Maggies Kinder Corner.  You can find it in her TpT store

We'll also read my emergent reader Look at the Butterfly from my Look at the Butterfly Pack, complete the sequence activity and use the writing paper to write our own stories about the butterfly life cycle.

This Thursday, we will also begin our ABC Ccountdown to summer vacation.  Here is what we did last year.  We are making some minor changes, but this will give you an idea of what we did, just in case you want to start your own.
