To end our week, we had special visitors talk with us about water safety! We discussed how important it is to stay with an adult near the water and we practiced fitting on life jackets. At circle time, we watched a short video on the life cycle of a Monarch butterfly. We incorporated coloring, cutting, gluing, and sequencing into our whole group activity by creating our very own butterfly life cycle cards. It was a fun Friday!

This morning began with reading Ten Wriggly, Wiggly Caterpillars at circle time. During our first small group activity, we discussed the definition of an insect and sorted through a basket of animals and bugs.  We listened to directional words and moved bugs for our second activity. Then, as our final group, we worked on counting bugs with one to one correspondence and writing the number symbols and words. We had a great Thursday!

To continue our week, we read Big Bugs at circle time. We looked at pictures and discussed some of the largest bugs in the world. As our first small group activity, we went on a bug search! We used magnifying glasses, and our best knowledge of bug homes, to see what we could find. A special guest even visited us outside and showed us a rhinoceros beetle that we will get to display in the classroom for the next few days! We sorted bugs in the second small group, some by color, some by size, some by type, and also by similarities. Then, in our last activity, we worked on letter recognition and matching to spell bug names. We had a wonderful Wednesday!

Today, at circle time, we read When the Fly Flew In. For our first small group activity, we worked on matching bugs by color and continuing patterns. We listened to bug riddles in the second group, deciding which bugs were being described. Then, in our final activity, we created bugs with Play Doh and other art materials. Some of our friends even made bug imprints! We were delighted to play outside today and are looking forward to more!

Starting this week off we have a new theme and we celebrated a birthday! After reading Insect Homes at circle time, we sang for a friend that turned three today! Our first activity involved identifying number symbols and using one to one correspondence to stack blocks on the bugs' backs. We explored the sensory bin in our second small group that was filled with sand, rocks, bugs, and various tools such as tongs, measuring cups, and magnifying glasses. Then, for our final group, we colored our very own bug booklets! We read the pages together and listened to the color words mentioned to know what color our bugs should have been. Due to our ever changing Missouri weather, we spent our morning indoors, hoping for the sun to warm up the temperature. Before we enjoyed some sunshine this afternoon, our Stars of the Week shared their favorite things with us! It was an amazing Monday!
