The Life Cycle of a Butterfly

Spring is in full bloom here!    
I love this time of year because students can learn and observe so much while being out in the beautiful  weather.  

Many classrooms that I work with are learning about life cycles. The past two weeks in particular, we have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly.   Today I want to share a song I wrote about this with you!

The vocabulary in the song includes the following key vocabulary words:  

I kept this song simple and allowed for repetition within almost all of the verses.  I also searched and found signs (ASL) for the four key vocabulary words listed above, as well as the following words:  fly, hatch, eat, spin.  I use these signs while singing the song so students have a motion for each part of the life cycle.  

The students have picked this song up very quickly and many of them are singing along on the repetitive phrases and mirroring the signs as well!

What other butterfly songs do you sing with your students or groups?

As always, thanks for stopping by!
