We enjoyed a buggy week of fun!
|The students surveyed 10 friends and used the data to answer the questions.|
|We read I Like Bugs by Margaret Wise Brown and I created this pocket chart. The students can change the adjectives to describe bugs.|
|The students pick 2 buggy cards to make a high number then a low number. The student spins the spinner to find which numbers to circle - odd or even.|
|The student picks 2 buggy cards to create an addition sentence.|
|The students pick 2 buggy cards to create a subtraction sentence.|
|The students followed directions to draw The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The directions are from Making Learning Fun.|
|We made blotto butterflies!|
|We read non-fiction books about moths and butterflies then compared them.|
|The students used the Venn diagram to write facts about moths and butterflies.|
|The students used the spinner to create caterpillar patterns using dot markers.|
|The students found caterpillars crawling around the room to write the days of the week.|
|Some students circled their favorite day of the week and wrote a sentence about why it was their favorite day.|
|After reading lots of non-fiction books about ladybugs we created this circle map.|
|The students wrote ladybug facts using the circle map as a resource.|
We enjoyed the story of The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. Below are some text to self responses the students wrote.
|Shhhh! Hibernating ladybugs!|
|The students sorted U word families.|
|The students made a bee with 3 body parts. We read books about bumblebees and honeybees. The students made a tree map about honeybees.|
|The students will use the tree map to write honeybee facts. The students are working on this so I don't have a picture :(|
Below are pictures of the students working in small groups to write and illustrate the life cycle of a ladybug, a butterfly, or an ant.
We made the appetizing ants together then wrote and illustrated the steps to making the ants.
