First, here are the literacy centers that we worked on that week:
This is another center that I made for the kiddos. They have three work mats with 3 different words on them. One says "ladybug", one says "dragonfly" and one says "caterpillar". They have to use the letters in these words to make smaller words.
This is the 3rd literacy center we worked on this week. It was a sight word scramble. The students look at the letters on the caterpillar's head and use the letter tiles(his body segments) to build the sight word.
Deanna Jump's Insect unit at TPT. If you haven't checked it out yet, you MUST!!!! It is my favorite thing that I have ever bought from TPT and I have gotten some AMAZING stuff!!! This unit is just SoOoOo much fun!!!! Here are some of the things that we did:
The 1st day of this unit, we learned about insects in general and wrote about things that we learned. I forgot to take pictures of this:(
The second day we learned all about dragonflies. Here is the chart we made:
Since dragonflies have very large compound eyes, we really talked a lot about them this day. This AWESOME little experiment is in Deanna's unit as well! It takes no time at all...but the kids LOVED it (and so did I!!) You just need to buy some of these little "bug viewers". You can get them in the party supply section anywhere.
The next day we learned all about bees!!! Take a look at my pollination lesson if you haven't yet!!! It's sooo fun!!
Here is the bee chart we made:
Last, but not least, I just wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Mother's day!!!! Here are my 2 little pumpkins:)
