April 10-14

The Kindergarteners are learning about life cycles. We have talked about the life cycle of an apple, a pumpkin, a spider, and a penguin. This week we learned about the life cycle of a butterfly. All butterflies start out as tiny eggs that turn into caterpillars. They live as a caterpillar for about 2 weeks before it spins a chrysalis. When it is in the chrysalis, it changes into a butterfly. We also learned some interesting facts about the Butterfly. Did you know that butterflies have their taste sensors in their feet? Some butterflies only live about 4 or 5 weeks and others live up to 9 months. Butterflies can’t fly when it is cold out, so they migrate to warmer weather in the fall. We found out that butterflies have symmetrical wing patterns. This week we created the butterfly’s life cycle using noodles, wrote a description of a butterfly we colored, and created a symmetrical butterfly picture. We also compared and contrasted the story and the movie Hermie: A Common Caterpillar. Hermie was a common caterpillar except that he talked with God and God answered him. We ended the week by spending the day at church working with the actors of Climb Theatre to learn about advocacy, empathy, and respect.
