While reading the poem - students can drag the bees out of the beehive - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Can make simple addition and subtraction problems using the bees and the beehive. For ex: "2 bees came out of the beehive and 1 more joined them, how many bees are out of the hive now? how many are in the hive?"
My students love repeating the poem and dragging the bees out and back in. Hope your students love it!!!
