Do you need some quick and easy ideas with a butterfly theme that reinforce standards, but your students will also enjoy?

You’ve come to the right place.

The end results also make a terrific decoration for a bulletin board or hallway.  Students can either guess who did which glyph, and practice all sorts of skills, or they can share them with the class and practice their verbal acuity.

Students enjoy using a bingo dot marker to stamp sets in a specific pattern.  They also cut and glue groups of butterflies to the matching numbered boxes.

When everyone is done, read the booklet as a whole group to reinforce concepts of print and recognition of number words.

Because students can work on these booklets independently, they are perfect for Daily 5.

Children not only enjoy making them, they feel empowered; teachers are then free to assess or work one-on-one.

I’m always looking for ways to fit in a mini lesson on compound words and rhyming as this can get a bit tedious if you constantly “skill-drill & then kill” it.

I’ve found that tossing in a fun-themed skill sheet, whenever it’s appropriate, is much more palpable and interesting for most students.

Butterfly Word Play does just that.  It breaks down the compound word butterfly and has students think of rhyming words for both butter and fly.

Students trace, write and alphabetize the words on a skill sheet.  This is a quick plug in for a tabletop lesson, as is adding UT to consonants and making up words for the prefix of butterfly.

Writing about being a caterpillar or a butterfly is a wonderfully imaginative thing for a child.  Illustrating how they would look as one results in adorable pictures.

I’ve also included a graphing extension to hit yet another standard and learn a bit more about your students.

Happy fluttering through your spring lessons; I hope these helped! Feel free to PIN anything you think might help someone else and thanks for flittin' on over.

I hope you can fly in tomorrow for some new tricks.
