W is for wakkasaur...

We used our eyes to find the letter W in our story "how do dinosaurs get well soon?"


We practiced writing the letter w for our dinosaur teeth

The girls enjoyed sorting the dinosaurs by their different kinds of families


The wheels on the bus

Mrs Alyssa read our favorite, Pete the cat who was singing the wheels on the bus

V is for vehicles

Our busy builders and mechanics fixed things around the class
And using the big rigs outside in the playground
Creating a mini big rig event to talk with the kids about safety

Butterfly butterfly

Though it was bug week, the clear favorite was butterflies... We didn't have enough wings to go around so we made our own!

We practiced cutting and creating symmetrical butterflies
Joyce, the art angel visited and did a special butterfly art program













Lifecycle of a butterfly

We read the very hungry caterpillar and discussed the lifecycle of a butterfly from egg to caterpillar to cocoon




Bug walk

What did we see on our bug walk this week?

Worms
Moths

And spiders
And even a friendly chipmunk!




Worms

We read the book yucky worms and learned that worms are not so Yucky! 
Using playdoh, we rolled out some worms
And practiced making our letter of the week, U
We discussed how worms make tunnels so roots can get down and we saw that some of our seeds have roots now!

We also went on a "u" scavenger hunt and found the letter u all over our room!


Itzi bitsi spiders

We learned the itzi bitzi spider song and read mrs. Spiders tea party. Though spiders are arachnids and not bugs, they do eat all types of bugs!
We drew lines and circles to make spiderwebs
And practiced cutting and counting to make 8legs
