Product Description
Have you ever felt bored in a class or meeting? This butterfly kit will ramp up interest for your k- 4th graders while teaching them core lesson topics in innovative ways.


Einstein discovered that imagination is more important than knowledge. In these materials imagination increases knowledge adventures and adds fun to learning!

The butterfly idea came to me from tasks I created for my own grandchildren who became fascinated with beauty and grace in these amazing creatures. It also came from sadly remembering the ways I tried to leapfrog over boredom in my own early grade classes. As a child I tended to learn quickly – and always felt like I wasted endless times waiting for kids to “catch up.” It felt to me that I was bored daily and so were my friends.

With butterfly tasks there is always a cool new flight or two to keep your students thinking. They create more and loving the adventure of learning – while they move through lessons more at their own pace. The butterflies also send mentally charged fuels such as serotonin that come to students when they feel cared for and supported as they learn.

Included here you will enjoy butterflies in different colors and shapes. Your enthused students can select, cut out or copy shapes here to bring their own butterflies to life. With their butterfly nearby on a desk or table, they will find an unconditionally supportive co-learner in their pet-pal. Where else can one feel consistently encouraged to progress?

This kit includes cool butterfly questions to foster higher level learning solutions, that students enjoy. Tasks include student-led questions, answers and innovative solutions.

Find CCSS aligned tasks and questions for (but not limited to) Kindergarten and grades 1 – 4. Imagine taking a close pet friend to class to help you through the challenging parts of your day, and you have seen the uses that work especially well for these materials.

My grandchildren come alive with their pet butterflies and love to learn with their Nana. Your learners too will find new meaning within these fun and colorful materials.

Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.

Do follow my TpT site and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.

All the best as you learn and lead with the brain in mind!
