Kinders have enjoyed the Butterfly Alphabet book I have been reading to them. In it, close up photos of butterfly wings create the letters of the alphabet. They learned that butterflies are insects and have 3 body parts. We then drew our own butterflies and wrote the alphabet in upper case letters. After redrawing them in sharpie, we painted. The goal was to give each letter its own color and fill in the rest how we chose. Kinders are learning to handle a brush " like an artist!" . They know to " sweep Mr. Brush, not smash him!"
