We learned so much about insects! We used all of the activities from my insect unit. I wish I had more pictures...sorry about that! It was so great to see how well the kids picked up on everything. I love when kids are having fun while learning!
After reading several nonfiction books about insects and the characteristics of insects. We then sorted pictures based on if they are insects or not.
I typed up several statements on cards, read them to the kids, and had the children come up to determine if it was a true or false statement.
We matched pictures to words. This gave the kids a chance practice identifying words by their beginning sounds.
We practiced one to one correspondence by counting out raisins onto these cute ladybugs. Edible activities are always popular! :)
We measured various sized pictures using cubes. We recorded our answers and then measured ourselves using the butterfly.
We had several read it, trace it, write it cards with several insect words. This was great writing practice for the sweeties.
This game is called Catch that Wasp and the kids played in partners. The kids rolled a die and moved that many number of spaces. For a challenge, the kids drew an alphabet card, and if they could identify the sound of the letter, they could move ahead one space.
This activity pack has brought so much fun and excitement to our classroom this week! If you're interested in purchasing, click the picture below.
Have a wonderful weekend! I am flying to Houston early, early tomorrow morning to spend time with some sweet friends. Enjoy your weekend!! :)
