Cute as a Bug

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Bugs and insects are totally cool, so I read a few stories about those fabulous creatures!

Don't Worry Bear by Greg Foley
A caterpillar reassures a worried bear that they will see each other again when the caterpillar emerges from its cocoon.

"The Itsy-Bitsy Spider" Action Song:
The itsy-bitsy spider went up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider went up the spout again!

Beetle Bop by Denise Fleming
Illustrations and rhyming text reveal the great variety of beetles and their swirling, humming, crashing activities.

"Busy Bees" Fingerplay:
Here is the beehive
Where are all the bees?
Hidden away where nobody sees
Now they come creeping
Out of the hive
One, two, three, four, five

"My Friendly Caterpillar" Action Rhyme:
My friendly caterpillar
Made its cocoon one day
It turned into a butterfly
And quickly flew away!

The Very Lonely Firefly by Eric Carle
A lonely firefly goes out into the night searching for other fireflies.

We were busy bees during craft time...
Making busy bees with word wings!
