Information About This Unit
In this unit, your child will read the poem "Caterpillars" by Aileen Fisher. Your child will compare two poems about caterpillars, add to her poetry folder, and make a fun butterfly craft. For the language arts concept, your child will understand the main idea of a visual message such as a poster, cartoon, or illustration. In the Writer's Workshop, your child will write about a picture in his house, a person that changed the world, and a poem similar in structure to the "Caterpillar" poem. This unit is designed to last one week, depending on how often you teach language arts.
