The toddlers have been diligently working on their butterfly life cycle books. We explored a different medium for each page ranging from watercolors to crayons to sponge painting to glitter and glue. Now we are in the process of writing the words for each page. I am sitting down one-on-one with each child as they dictate the words to me. I have enjoyed listening to all of the creative thoughts they have shared with me. Some children are very scientific and want to label the pages with "Egg" or "Chrysalis," while others want to tell a story, "The caterpillar is happy and hungry." We may have the next Eric Carle among these budding authors!
