Here we have all kinds of neat things to do.
This page will be updated to include activities for every week :)
To the Teacher's
Spring into Action with
The Very Hungry Caterpillar!
Today we are going to be focusing on a great story
that has been a favorite of mine since I was your age! Most of today
we will work on a new portion of this site. There is a new activity
that you are going to complete each period :) This is going to be
so much fun!
IF YOU NEED ANY HELP, JUST RAISE YOUR HAND!
First, I am going
to read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle to the whole class.
After we read this story, we are going to either be working on a project
or on computer time.
of us doing computer time:
- When you are finished with your quiz, just simply log
into your CCC account to wait for the other group to finish.
For those of us working on the project:
- When you are finished with your project just color another
paper, go find a book, or play with the blocks until everyone is finished.
The Life of a Monarch Butterfly
The butterfly lays an Egg
on the leaf of a Milkweed plant.
A Caterpillar is born. He eats the leaves of the plant
The caterpillar creates a Chrysalis around its body.
After some time, a Butterfly comes out of the chrysalis.
After we all complete the first lesson, we are going to split up
into our groups again for another project.
Next, we are going to explore the actual life cycle of the caterpillar
into the butterfly. There are a few activities we are going to complete
today during this time.
For those of us on the computers:

For those of us on working on projects:

- Then we will complete a picture of a butterfly
and its life cycle. You will color the life cycle parts and then cut
them out and paste them in the correct order onto the butterfly's wings.
- The last project we are going to complete will be all groups togethers.
We are still going to be separated into the same two groups that we
have in all day that way everyone gets a chance at the materials available.
- Our last project will not be graded it is just for fun. When you are
on the computers I want you to go print out the instructions from HERE!
- Once you have your directions, bring them to your table and wait for
further instructions. :)
