Butterfly Life Cycle - Nonfiction Reading Comprehension

Writing/Reading Comprehension {All about BUTTERFLIES}
62 pages of worksheets and activities that can be used
with any nonfiction and fiction book about BUTTERFLIES!
Students took turns sorting the life cycle of a butterfly!
After sorting the butterfly life cycle several times in whole group the students completed their own life cycle independently. (For some reason I completely missed taking a picture of a completed student life cycle, so here is an example of the worksheet found in this packet.)
Students wrote a complete sentence stating one fact they learned about the butterfly life cycle.
This task can be easily differentiated
by requiring more sentences for students that need to be challenged.
If a student isn't yet able to write a sentence independently
the student can draw and label the life cycle. This student can also verbally dictate the life cycle while the teacher records the student's words.


We completed the labeling of butterfly body parts in whole group with some interactive writing!
The students absolutely LOVE coming up to the board as if they are the teacher!
As one student is writing on the teacher board other students are stretching the word slowly as a group and then students can have individual student marker boards to complete the writing on their own. We did this activity at the beginning and the end of the lesson multiple times!

The students chose 4 butterfly body parts they wanted to practice stretching and writing indpendently!
