SK April 17th Adventure

Good morning friends! For the past two days we’ve learned about bees- what could be next on our bug hunt!? Butterflies! Bees and butterflies both have double letters in their name! One has a double vowel team and one has a double consonant team. Tell your mom or dad which word has which team in it! Let’s explore butterflies!



Butterflies start off as an insect called a caterpillar. Do you notice anything about the word caterpillar? C a t e r p i l l a r. Write it out! The word caterpillar has a double consonant team!

Caterpillars have a lot of legs! Can you guess how many legs caterpillars have? 16! Imagine how fast you could run if you had 16 legs! Count your legs… You have two! Can you count by 2’s all the way to 16? Show your mom or dad!


A caterpillar doesn’t stay a caterpillar it’s whole life! It goes through something called metamorphosis. Wow that’s a big word! *Remember “ph” in a word makes the same sound as an f. Let’s sound out the word together. M e t a m o r p h o s i s. Nice work boys and girls! Metamorphosis means that a baby insect is changing into it’s adult form! Complete the life cycle linked below to see the different stages the caterpillar goes through to become a butterfly!


We’ve talked about double vowel teams (a,e,i,o,u) and double consonant teams (every other letter in the alphabet). Print off the Double Letter Word Sort linked below to practice!

Now let’s work on writing our numbers out! Print off the worksheet and follow the instructions to complete each of the caterpillars! On the last page you get to choose how you would like to count. Make sure to show your mom or dad when you’re finished!


Now that our bug hunt is over for the day are you ready to practice those soccer skills? Coach Kieran sure is!
