Language and Literacy
Microsoft Word and Kidspiration were offered at the computer station to inspire young writers.
Our books included the Big Book
"A Butterfly is Born" by, Melvin Berger and many of the butterfly books and literacy materials from the Nature Store ( the pop-up book is a class favorite)
Children were encouraged to write
poetry, songs and stories. We provided butterfly life cycle puppets for the puppet theatre and life cycle rubber stamps and
journals in the writing center. Wood was on hand for use in creating garden signs.
To inspire creative play,we turned our dramatic play center into a "garden". We provided
butterfly wings and children helped create box "bushes" for caterpillars to crawl on,under and through.
