B is for bugs! I is for insects! Due to our crazy busy schedule, I only had the chance to take a few pictures from our bugs week.
Centers: I used PreKinders for a lot of this bug theme! It was a wonderful resource. Check out this link for the bug jar sorting printables from PreKinders. I also purchased Learning Resources Backyard Bugs for counting and using them with the jar printables.
I made this addition and number practice activity for my students. I used the glass beads from the crafts stores and used Modge Podge to adhere black paper to make spots.
I would tell the students how many dots to put on their ladybugs and then we would add. I introduced the concept of "Counting On" to the students to help them prepare for Kindergarten.
For our 3s class I would just tell them which number of spots to put on. This is a great activity to practice one to one correspondence.
The inspiration for this bulletin board can be found here!
- The bumble bee, click beetle, and the ants were from The Mailbox
For my older students I created Bugs Sentence Strips which are available for sale on my Teacher Pay Teachers store.
Hope you enjoyed going buggy with us!
