Pre-K Emerging Into Butterfly Cycles

My students need the Butterfly Nursery so they can observe and learn about the cycle of butterflies.

My Students

JRE Elementary School opened its doors on August 8, 2016. The current location is a temporary location and we will relocate when our replacement school is completed. Our vision is to become a school of excellence where all students exceed expectations to be ready for colleges, careers, and contributions to the global community. Many of our students come from bilingual households and receive free or reduced lunch.

My Pre-K class is comprised of 22 smart and adorable little "sponges".

There are 12 boys and 10 girls. Many of my students come in not speaking English and very limited Spanish, but by the beginning of the 2nd semester, you would not believe how much they have learned and grown.

My Project

The Butterfly Nursery will help my students identify and learn the stages of the butterfly life cycle. Having these materials will give my students a visual representation and experience of the growth and life of the butterflies.

The Butterfly Nursery will also enhance my students' learning experience through their vocabulary and hands-on knowledge.

This activity will make a difference in my students' lives because they will get to see first hand how the caterpillars transform to a chrysalis and then to an actual beautiful butterfly. By studying the butterfly cycle the students will learn and engage in the pre-literacy skill of sequencing.
