It's that time of year....when winter just won't leave and you try anything to get spring to arrive, including studying the butterfly lifecycle!

I'm trying to do more thematic things in my classroom and did the following things this week:

Received 5 caterpillars (one for each team) to observe
Listening Center: Houghton-Mifflin 8.3 story Butterfly
Listening Center: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle
Storytime: read several non-fiction books about the lifecycle
Did a scavenger hunt which lead to making a word bank poster for the lifecycle
Did a sequenced writing activity about the lifecycle
Did an art project to illustrate the lifecycle

Here are some great resources I made:
