We started this activity by reading Ugh! A Bug! by Ned Crowley and Bug Parts by Charlotte Guillain. Both nonfiction books have a lot of close up photos of real bugs and describe the bug and insect parts.Before reading the books, I had created a journal entry fill-in-the-blank page to fill in with numbers. I had planned on using a sticker page to have E pick out the correct number to fill in the blanks, but then we found these number stamps which she chose to use instead. She actually remembered a lot of the facts from the books to fill in on her own.
Here is the final entry. Unfortunately I did not leave enough room for the stamp numbers, but it still worked out okay! We definitely need to continue with the journaling....such a great activity.
