In April, we welcomed spring by learning about caterpillars and butterflies.  We read Eric Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar.

While reading the Very Hungry Caterpillar, we discussed some new vocabulary used in the book including the words cocoon and chrysalis.  The students also sequenced the life cycle of a butterfly.

During math time, the students counted caterpillars and also helped count out all of the food the very hungry caterpillar ate.

During art, the students made caterpillars using different art mediums including paper, egg cartons, painting with potatoes, and fingerprints.  IMG_0139_2 IMG_0138_2 IMG_0137_2
