Hello Boys & Girls! I hope you are having a wonderful week and enjoyed the sunshine the last few days. On Monday and Tuesday you learned about the butterfly life cycle. It is so neat to see the way a butterfly transforms from an egg to such a beautiful and unique creature.
Has anyone been to the Butterfly House at Brookfield Zoo? We love visiting this spot when we go to the zoo. Hopefully we can visit the zoo soon to see the butterflies and other animals!
Today on this rainy day try to get your body moving by doing some yoga with Coco the Butterfly.
Let's make some butterflies!
Symmetrical Butterflies: Check out Mrs. O'Brien and her children painting symmetrical butterflies in the video above. Print out a butterfly from the link below and be sure to post a picture of your beautiful butterfly in the comments of the blog post. We can't wait to see it!
Symmetry: Take some Popsicle sticks or strips of paper and draw half the shape in the same color on each side and have your child match the pieces together. Play Memory with the sticks or strips of paper or even time them to see how fast they can match the pieces together.
Get creative and have fun with scraps of paper and a paper plate to make Butterfly art.
Math- Simple Subtraction
This week we are working on subtraction, or take away. Sing the song Five Little Speckled Frogs with your child and practice saying what number comes next. (5, 4, 3, 2, 1)
Journal Entry: Write a subtraction sentence for example; 5-1=4, and have your child draw a picture of the frogs jumping into the pond.
Have a great week and have fun!
