Spring Time means Life Cycles in Kindergarten

Spring Time is so much fun especially when we start our study of life cycles! We had chicken eggs delivered on the 14th and they hatched on the 21st. The kinders were so excited to see this happen in their classroom. Since I am the only teacher to still do this in our school we usually have a parade of students to come through and check them out.

The next living organisms to arrive in our classroom were caterpillars! When the box arrived I asked the kinders what they thought was inside... They guessed a koala, a kangaroo, an alligator! what!?!


I created a few new resources for my class to go along with our Life Cycle theme. 
The kinders love trying to guess what is in side the egg based on the clues when we watch a powerpoint of oviparous riddles called "What is Inside the Egg?". Check out the preview on TpT here.


For ELA practice I have some "What Will Hatch?" sentence building pages and an interactive emergent reader that we work on throughout the week. Click on the title to check it out!




And for my math centers I have a fun, hands-on  "Hungry Caterpillars and Happy Butterflies" number sense and addition match packet.


Just for sticking with me all the way to the end of this post you can click here for a FREEBIE!



So much is happening in my classroom and we only have 12 and a half days left of school! Agh! I better get started on my end of the year slide show!!
