We love the many Eric Carle stories, especially learning about caterpillar to Butterfly life cycle through “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”
Great numeracy as we count the items the caterpillar has eaten and literacy as we read the items. “On Monday he ate through one apple”….”On Thursday he ate through four strawberries.”
We watched a real caterpillar turn into a Butterfly
We create our own pictures about caterpillars and butterflies
We look at pictures of real butterflies, we notice that they are symmetrical.
Even the boys will join in with drawing.
