How to play:
Give one elephant mat to each student.
Cut out butterflies; Give 5 butterflies to each student.
Cut out word cards and riddle cards.
Present a word card to a child. Have the child say the word correctly 5 times, then place a butterfly on a net on his/her elephant mat.
Repeat 5 times, until all 5 nets have a butterfly on them.
