SHOW AND TELL
Bring a picture of an insect.
Can you show how it moves?
It’s 90% of the Earth’s creatures
The value is humility, and we’ll be learning to respect the small creatures that share our world.
For cooking, we’ll try pretzel butterflies and sun-dried apples.
Outside, we’ll go on a bug hunt.
The songs we’ll be singing are Itsy, Bitsy Spider, The Ants Go Marching, Shoo Fly, Let There Be Peace on Earth, and We Shall Overcome.
For creative dramatics, we’ll practice moving like an insect.
Our art activities are pinch-bug magnets, construction paper butterfly, circle caterpillars, and ladybug life cycle.
For motor development, we’ll work on coordination with moving like a grasshopper, a cricket, a butterfly, a bee, a daddy longlegs, and a praying mantis. For bilaterality we’ll do a moon walk, play popcorn, roll a ball with partners, and hop like a camel.
