butterflies, homophones, and an end of the year packet
To follow-up our Amazing Animal research reports, we kicked off the week with a study on butterflies. The kindergartners down the hall have been observing the different stages of a butterfly’s life, so this morning I snatched them to conduct our own observations.
SO MUCH FUN!
After we did a little observing, we did a little buddy reading on butterflies.
While reading, we completed a CAN/HAVE/ARE graphic organizer and a Main Idea and Supporting Details organizer. You can grab both of them here:
Tomorrow we’ll be learning all about homophones with the help of this little anchor chart I created AND Cara Carroll’s homophones activities (found in her Camping Capers pack). Love.her!
I’m also SUPER excited to show you all the newest packet I’ve been working on.
