The lighted end of the flashlight will be the firefly’s tail. Glue the two eyes on each side of the other end of the flashlight to make the firefly’s eyes. Now glue the two rectangular shaped antenna at the top of the flashlight, above the eyes. Midway down the flashlight is where you will glue one 2 inch half circle and one 4 inch half circle on each side of the flashlight to make wings. Let the flashlight fireflies dry, then turn them on to see them light up! Firefly Catchers Academic opportunities (preschool level): Opportunities to tact the objects mentioned that the firefly mistakes for other fireflies: lantern, flashlight, headlights, candle, fireworks, etc. We decided to make our own fireflies (or lightning bugs as I used to call them) using a cardboard tube and some paper. They turned out super cute! (You could even make a smaller version using an empty toilet paper roll.)

Carle's richly hued, collage-like art and gentle text will be comfortingly familiar to his numerous young devotees."-- Publishers WeeklyThey are unique because they light up! At night, the last abdominal segment glows. This amazing ability is how fireflies (or lightning bugs) get their name. Paint your cardboard tube to resemble the body of a firefly. We painted the top 2/3 of ours brown and the bottom third with white and yellow stripes. Set it aside to dry.

Then place a damp coffee filter or paper towel in the jar. This keeps the environment humid to protect the firefly. Connection to six early literacy skills - I think this book hits all of these early literacy skillsLushly illustrated with Eric Carle's trademark vibrant collage art, soothingly told with a gentle read-aloud rhythm, and complete with a surprise sure to "light up" children's faces, The Very Lonely Firefly will fast become a storytime favorite. Read it with a flashlight in the dark or under the table--and watch those fireflies glow! Praise for The Very Lonely Firefly : Vocabulary - lots of different light sources are used and it gives children the change to think of each light source.
