Ladybugs and KG Upcoming Events

By in ,

Watching the metamorphosis of our ladybug larvae has been exciting for our Kindergarten students. Excited voices could be heard exclaiming “The pupa changed to a ladybug!!” After watching the yellow, spotless ladybug for a short time, once again a student yelled “Now there are spots!!”  The next day, the change continued as they began to change from yellow to pink and the number of spots increased. First hand observations of life cycles are fascinating!

Along with observing ladybugs, the children are working on creating bug poetry. We have learned that there are many ways to be poetic, which really means to try to look at things in a fresh, new way.

After reading the book The Grouchy Ladybug, we have decided to do the story in a play. The children are excitedly practicing their parts and thinking about how to make their costumes. We will be putting on the play as part of our end of year KG Celebration on Monday, June 2 at 8:15. We hope you have your calendars marked for that special event.
