Butterfly Week

So, we finished our Oviparous Animal research, writing, and craft this week (along with trying to move along with our butterfly unit!)

Click {HERE} to see the other FUN we had doing oviparous animals.

For this project, we did a little research...

They used these questions to help guide their research.

Then, they turned that into writing. and a little cute craft.

These are some of the activities from my {Oviparous Animals research pack}. 

Annnnnnd, our chicken eggs are ready to hatch!! We also have ducks and geese, but they need another week. I'm pretty darn excited!!

AND, we did our butterfly unit this week.

You can see what we did last year {HERE}.

Here are some of my favorite {Butterfly books} I love to use.

During small groups, we read our Reading A-Z books and had the caterpillars there DOING what we were reading about! So cool to have real life examples!

Some drawing of the butterfly life cycle in their learner's notebooks....which was practice for our final writing we did.

We brought out the watercolor paint to make our own butterflies for our butterfly measurement.

I always love how these turn out!

I got this idea a few years ago from Mrs. Lee's Kindergarten.

We did one of my favorite activities I have done for the last 13 years - {butterfly symmetry} - to go with our butterfly life cycle writing!

Another one of my favorite activities we do - really focusing on transition words.

And we read Charlie the Caterpillar - it's SUCH a cute book! We focused on sequencing, using those transition words....you can see them highlighted.

We are just waiting for all our insects to work their magic! The caterpillars are in their cocoon. The praying mantis egg sack is hanging up and the ladybug grubs are running around. Still waiting on the ants to arrive.... but we have a nice little "farm" going on here....

And, my friends, we are in countdown mode!! This picture was taken a few days ago, so now we are in the 20s!!! I can NOT believe we are almost to the end. Sometimes i think the year just goes so fast, and sometimes it feels like it doesn't go fast enough - haha!
