Bug Fun Summer School 2012

Wow!  What an awesome, busy, fun week we have had!
We learned about BUGS...insects and other creepy crawlies.
We learned about lady bugs ...
after learning that lady bugs eat aphids , one of the kiddos chimed
"Hey, ladybugs are like SUPER HEROS!"  I love my job!

We also learned about bees, fireflies, flies, and caterpillars.
We learned  science words like:
entomologist
metamorphosis
migration
WOW!

We learned that bugs can have any number of legs
but insects have 6 legs.

We are scientists, I tell you!

Here we are painting our lady bug poem:
I love having kids illustrate literature!

Here we are getting our "brushes" ready....

and "SWAT!!!"


We watched a TumbleBook or United Streaming 5 min "book" 
during snack time.  We will be doing this during the school year, too.
This quiet listening time gives us a chance to eat without rushing...
Plus the educational and fun video books feed our brain!

Here we are posing for our picture frames!










Tadadada!  We solved our firefly challenge together!



Love this pic of two friends heading down the hill to play.
We tried to get outside everyday.

Love Love Love these buggy frames!

These little fellas are always a hit!


We tried our hand at journaling...
We fed our very hungry caterpillar but 
"he was STILL hungry!"





Friday Fun!  
BUGS!

Sun catchers and glitter glue....can't go wrong!

We were scientists as we discovered the similarities and differences
between several type of bugs.

Hope they made it home safe!
