Bug Unit (April)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon affiliate links.


I began April thinking that there were very few bug books that were appropriate for my students.

Turns out I was wrong.

I actually checked so many books out from the library, that I could only use a percentage of them.

Kindergarten and 1st grades: The Very Busy Spider, The Very Quiet Cricket, The Very Clumsy Click Beetle

1st and 2nd grades: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Leo the Lightning Bug

2nd and 3rd grades: Gotta Go! Gotta Go!, Diary of a Spider, Velma Gratch and the Way Cool Butterfly

For all these stories we focused on vocabulary, repeating lines, and story retelling (with visuals).

And of course there were Bug Bingo Bingo boards…

Overall, I was pleased with my bug month (appropriate for my K-3rd graders, my 4th and 5th graders were focused on class curriculum vocabulary).


Check out the Plant Unit (March) and Vehicle Unit (May) as well!
