Before you begin...
Each Artful Reading Module is flexibly designed for a 2-3 week duration. Lessons are marked for Before-, During-, or After-Reading to guide your planning. We have added a sample of an After Reading lesson entitled Life Cycle of a Story for you to preview. Each lesson is designed in an easy to read format, with standards, materials needed, and step-by-step directions to ensure you are fully prepared when it’s time to deliver.
This module contains the following lessons:
- Growing Butterflies
- Butterflies on the Brain
- The Art of the Life Cycle
- A Caterpillar's Calendar
- Very Hungry...Readers

At the end of the module, you will find options for summative writing tasks and optional extensions that can stretch the module further.
