We are continuing our insect fun this week by studying about butterflies. The kids are having so much fun watching our caterpillars make their chrysalises and they can not wait for the butterflies to emerge!!

We started our butterfly study by reading an informational book and then recording facts we learned. 
Then, we learned a little song by Dr. Jean to help us remember the life cycle of a butterfly and recorded what we learned on a big chart and then did a litle independent activity. 

We also painted a paper plate that we turned into a butterfly to hold our butterfly fact writing.

For our narrative story, we read Charlie the Caterpillar. This is such a sweet book to teach about being a true friend and also great to discuss how characters can change throughout a story. We charted how Charlie changed, then each child made their own story map. 

You can get this story map here for free also {Thanks again to Cara for the font and Krista  for the frame}
While getting ready to read The Very Hungry Caterpillar tomorrow, I noticed that the plums in my sequencing pack were actually blueberries! It's now fixed and if you have already purchased the pack, be sure to go re-download it. I added in another story {There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell} as an I'm Sorry :). If you need some sequencing activites, this pack has whole group and small group sequencing activities for 6 stories...click the picture for more details. 


  1. I love that story about Charlie! The illustrations are super cute too. Thanks for the freebies. :0)
