A boy welcomes to the students to his backyard where they help him hunt for bugs. Equipped with his magnifying glass, the boy and your students find many bugs. Your students will meet bug and learn descriptors related to the bug. Activities increase their use/understanding of core words (i.e. look, put, in, out, yes, no, etc.) and descriptive words (i.e. big, little, different, spotted, long, loud, etc.), They practice in answering simple yes/no questions. A hands-on activity with “Move Like a Bug” cards involve the student in acting like bugs in a designated sequence. Lots of fun! The snack mats are the perfect way to keep the communication going during snack time and at home. A parent letter explains how to use the snack mat.
