“Letter C is for Caterpillars Week” Blog Recap!

Hello all,

“Letter C is for Caterpillars Week” was by far the Coolest week of the 2018-2019 school year yet!  The students entered school each day with a Crazy amount of Letter C shares! Everything from Cookies, Camping supplies, Coloring books, Cows and Construction vehicles were sent in and shared!  There were tons of Letter books that came in as well!  To help explore the letter C, the students also learned all about counting!  Well, “Letter C is for Caterpillars Week” has come and gone.  Read on below to discover the learning that took place and fun that was had throughout the week!

The students spent both Monday and Tuesday morning working one on one with the teachers to complete their Letter C identification/fine motor activity sheets.  The teachers were so impressed with how easily the new students recognized the letter C and also how well the older students remembered all things “C” during their morning work!  In the afternoon on Monday and Tuesday, the students created the third letter list of the year!  Naturally, the letter C list was full of Creative answers!  As a whole group, the students took turns brainstorming and contributing words that begin with the letter C and also hunted around the classroom for Countless letter C items!


Do you see any letter C shares?

Answer:  Crown, Crayons, Crab, Chicken and a C!

During music class this week, the students learned the following Caterpillar Song with Miss Anna.



Speaking of caterpillars, the students began their art exploration of caterpillars on Wednesday as they transformed paper towel rolls into wiggly and bendy caterpillars.



On Thursday, the students used popsicle sticks and fuzzy pom-poms to assemble some cute and cuddly caterpillars – perfect for Letter C Week!



In the afternoons on Wednesday and Thursday, the students participated in Spanish class where they continued and completed their exploration of unit one – Spanish Greetings!  They also enjoyed participating in a technology presentation all about Caterpillars!  They were FASCINATED to witness the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly firsthand in the following clip.



After a week of caterpillar crafting and exploration, it only seemed right to end “Letter C is for Caterpillar Week” by creating some butterflies!  Using markers, the students colored beautiful designs all around coffee filters and then sprayed them with water to create the following!



Well, that is all for “Letter C is for Caterpillars Week”; it sure was a Cool!  As always, thank you for reading and have a fun and safe weekend!
