Musician Shares Life Cycle of Butterfly with Washington Kindergarteners
School For Comprehensive Literacy's kindergarten class under the
instruction of Kia Hang was recently treated to a sing along with Mrs.
Klemme brought along her guitar and a
tree filled with paper cocoons to tell the children the story of the
caterpillar turning into a butterfly. Through several repetitions of
the song the children showed their understanding the caterpillar to
butterfly cycle by filling in the words when the musician would stop
the story. The children enjoyed encouraging the butterfly to come out
of his cocoon and fly away.
At the end of the
presentation the children removed the cocoons from the tree to find
that one was open and the butterfly had left, and the others were
filled with caterpillars (gummy worms) that the children could enjoy.
The children loved the presentation and were totally engaged.
