Butterflies and Caterpillars: The students learned that butterflies are insects. They also discovered that a butterfly’s life cycle is made up of four parts, egg, larva (caterpillars), pupa (chrysalis) and adult. We talked about how an adult butterfly will eventually emerge from the chrysalis where it will wait a few hours for its wings to fill with blood and dry, before flying for the first time. The students learned that butterflies often have brightly colored wings with unique patterns (symmetric). We read about how most butterflies feed on nectar from flowers and have taste receptors on their feet.

Work Time:

Composing Quantities: This child is practicing the sequence of numbers in the decimal system units, tens, hundreds, and thousands and recognizing what different quantities look like.
Triangle Box: This child is developing an understanding that an equilateral triangle can be subdivided into other types of triangles.
Cursive Chalkboard Writing: This child is practicing writing her first name in cursive on a chalkboard. She is developing multiple skills involving her eyes, arms, hands, memory, posture and body control.
Addition: These children are using the bead bar box to discover that when you put two small numbers together you get a larger number and that this process is called addition.
