Caterpillars growing.....books.....art!

Our classroom has been revived by caterpillars!



We have 5 fast growing caterpillars and everyone goes straight to them when they walk into the room. They are enjoying the process.


I haven't personally had the opportunity to go through the caterpillar/butterfly process. I took the advice of a wise kindergarten teacher: "Tape the cup to the counter." Excellent advice!

I also was given this cool packet.....



They needed something to attach to.......


Now all we need to do is wait....and read some good books

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

Ten Little Caterpillars by Bill Martin Jr.
illustrated by Lois Ehlert (love her pictures!)

and do some cool art projects......

egg carton, paint, wiggly eyes and pipe cleaner!

We have more to share! 
Later,
Paula
