We used The Very Hungry Caterpillar as our spine book and completed THIS lapbook. We own this book (a board book and a paper back). It is one of our all time favorite bedtime books. This one is special to me as well because it is one of the very first books that I remember reading all by myself when I was little. I hope that my children will have special memories of the books we read together and eventually books they read themselves.
Table activities included learning what begins with the letter B, matching capitals and lower case letters, a booklet of ABC foods, matching colors and foods, counting butterflies, and reviewing shapes.
We also read lots of other story books about butterflies
and learned a little more about the life cycle of a butterfly and the many different kinds of butterflies and moths with these books.
Little M made these cute crafts of a caterpillar
and a butterfly.
When both crafts were complete he was excited showing his dad when he turned to me and said "hey, that's cool, look, first we made a caterpillar and then we made a butterfly because a caterpillar turns into a butterfly!" I love those aha moments!
