We had a great day learning all about caterpillars and butterflies. We talked about the life cycle and some of the key words (like cocoon) that they'd encounter in their reading. Everyone got 5 'C' stickers and got to look through all the reading books that we had about caterpillars. They were so engaged in looking at the pictures and finding the letter C within the text.Amazing Action Alphabet. Grab our caterpillar preschool lesson plans here!
Sometimes when we're working with preschoolers it's good to see how a lesson might actually happen. Today I spent about 5 minutes per kid in some one-on-one reading lesson time. I took video of a few of the kids, but due to the nature of the beast there are names used etc so I can't post them all. Here is my reading lesson with EMan (now 3yrs 2months). I haven't edited it so it's very realistic to what really happens in our little classroom.
