Kinders Gone Buggy!

We had so much fun learning about bugs this past week.  We did a number of activities based upon The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  (Check out my activity set on TpT)  We read and retold the story, discussed reality & fantasy, compared this book to a nonfiction book about butterflies, learned about the life cycle of a butterfly, wrote about caterpillars, and made beautiful caterpillar and butterfly crafts.  Whew, that was a lot of activities based upon one book!  I'm not sure how many times I read it this week, but the Kinders enjoyed hearing the story every time!  Here are a few pictures of our week.

Our hallway bulletin board is very busy!  Beautiful painted butterflies flutter above caterpillars, caterpillar writing, and labeled life cycle diagrams.

This next picture isn't a butterfly activity, but I wanted to include it in a buggy post.  I found this cute bug word wheel in a older issue of The Mailbox and wanted to make a record sheet to go with it.  Well, one thing lead to another, and I made a little -ug Family activity for TpT.
