First, we practiced with a butterfly addition worksheet. It had stars, hearts, diamonds, etc. on each wing. The students had to add up the amount on each wing and write the answer to the addition problems. Then, we cut out our own butterflies, and we colored them with markers. Then, we put star stickers on each of the wings to make an addition problem. The students chose the number of stickers and wrote the addition problem for their own butterflies. Of course, they had to solve the problem by adding up the amount of stars on each wing. They are great at addition. I am so proud of them. :-) The butterflies look really great in the hallway.
Today, we went on a field trip to see a play called, "House at Pooh Corner." It was about Winnie the Pooh and all of his friends. The kids loved it! It was a wonderful play. When we came back, we wrote about our favorite character from the play in our journals. The majority of the class loved Piglet and Tigger. :-)
