Yesterday we made caterpillars, today we made beautiful butterflies! We began the first full day of spring walking through snow showers, but it ended with sunshine and butterflies! This task had us working on fine motor control.

Spring Caterpillars

Happy Spring! It's finally here! As of 7:02 this morning, Spring has arrived!

We will be reading a number of Eric Carle books in the coming weeks and thought it best to start with one of the most famous ones, The Hungry Caterpillar! To go along with the story we made our very own spring egg caterpillars.

To put a spin on the activity our eggs had letters written on each one and we were asked to put them in alphabetical order, and to come up with words that began with each letter. We also strengthened our fine motor skills by threading the eggs together on our pipe cleaner. We had a lot of fun while working so hard, and in the process made such cute caterpillars!

Spring Counting Eggs- &- Capital and Lowercase Letters

Tomorrow is the first day of spring! We have been getting excited and working with spring eggs for a couple weeks now. Today we made our own set of Counting Eggs with glue dots and glitter! The task helped us with our fine motor control, number recognition, one-to-one correspondence, and counting. 

Later we continued working with our letter eggs! We matched lowercase and capital letters while working on letter sounds! 

We just can't wait to jump into spring!
