My Kindergarten students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They love hands-on activities that are engaging. All of the students in our school receive free breakfast and lunch. A number of students in my class receive food bags on Fridays to help throughout the weekend.
Ever curious, my students come to school full of questions and ready to learn each day despite sometimes difficult home situations.
Our school is nestled in the Appalachian Mountains of southern West Virginia, an area greatly affected by the economic downturn.
These materials will allow our students to explore the life cycle of a butterfly in a hands on, real world manner that is developmentally appropriate for Kindergarteners. These materials will be used to enhance a butterfly unit of study and the story A Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
The butterfly kits in particular, will give students the ability to witness first hand how a caterpillar goes through the metamorphosis process to become a butterfly.
The felt board materials will allow students to retell the story A Very Hungry Caterpillar. Butterfly counters will be used in a variety of ways and across the curriculum.
