My students need a butterfly kit, manipulatives, books and activities for our butterfly life cycle center.
I am a Special Education Teacher in a low-income/high poverty school with nearly 700 students in grades Pre-K to 6th. Eighty-four percent are high needs. Fifty eight percent of our students are economically disadvantaged, thirty-four percent are students with disabilities and forty-eight percent are English language learners. Our school houses numerous programs for children with Autism. As you can see we are a community of diverse learners.
My students, who are all diagnosed with autism, are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.
They are very kind, caring, enthusiastic and eager to learn. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things exciting and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences that will help them believe in themselves and be successful.
Every Spring, I use the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle to introduce my students to our butterfly life cycle unit. It is always a big hit with my young learners who want to understand how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly.
This year, I would love to be able to expand their knowledge base through exploration, discovery and critical thinking but I need materials that are safe, age appropriate yet challenging, and meet the individual needs of all of my students.
I can think of no better way to engage my students then having them witness the actual metamorphosis and am asking for an Insect Lore Live Butterfly Growing Kit. As my students watch and graph the growth and changes of the tiny caterpillars, it would be wonderful to have manipulatives, books, music and activities that will address the needs of my auditory, visual and kinesthetic learners. I am asking for a From Caterpillar to Butterfly Big Book Activity Kit, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Storytelling Kit, Snap N Learn Shape Butterflies and Safari Ltd Life Cycle of a Monarch and more so that my students will be able to have many opportunities to practice and apply new information in individual, pair, small group and whole group settings.
