We not only witnessed firsthand the real butterfly process at school in the butterfly cage, we truly explored the steps with Lauren and Catharine in movement class. We started by reading a book on caterpillars and picking our favorite one to pretend to be. We then laid on the ground as a little egg and hatched onto our leaves. We inched around like the caterpillars for a bit then bent in half to become a chrysalis. We slowly emerged when the time was right, spread and dried off our wings, Then flew!!!
Afternoon movement class with Lauren was an adventure with parachute play!
We created an alphabet out of wooden letters. We painted them first. Then we went on a nature walk to discover nature items that we can use to collage. The letters will be displayed under the window in the 5-day classroom all year long. We have been working on our letters as well. Simply noticing how our names are spelled and the letters we see in the classroom.
