The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle

John did an amazing job using the shapes to represent the

stages of a butterfly metamorphosis.

Each picture represents a stage:

1. egg

2. caterpillar

3. pupa

4. butterfly

Religion: Kindergartners are the leaders of the Mass on Wednesday, May 25.  We will be reading the readings for this Mass and practicing our Mass parts.  Thank you for helping us be successful readers by practicing at home.  We look forward to celebrating with you after our Mass!

Language Arts: Please continue to read 20 minutes daily.  Invite your child to follow along as you point to the words and help sound out the words. Also, keep practicing writing names with one capital letter.

As the school year is winding down, we are reviewing the lives of the Superkids by reading their Memory Books.  What a great connection to our own memory books that we are making for Kindergarten. 


Math:  We will continue to explore addition and subtraction using Math worksheets, playing cards, manipulatives, and snacks.  Yes, I said snacks!

Science/Social Studies: Kindergarten has pupas (caterpillars that have formed their chrysalids)!  We will explore the wonder of how they change to painted butterflies during metamorphosis. Word search fun, caterpillar counting, and lots of other fun activities are planned this week. 


Library Day is Wednesday. 

Don't forget to return your books!

Read Across MMSA!
