Flip-Flop Blog Hop AND a FLASH FREEBIE!!!

Welcome to the Flip-Flop Blog Hop!  As part of this hop, I got to try out the awesome "Butterfly Life-Cycle Cross-Curricular Mega Pack" from Life Over C's.  I used it at school just as our butterflies emerged from their chrysalises AND for a little "at home" butterfly-themed fun with my son and daughter.  It was a hit!  

First, we used it at home for some addition and subtraction practice.  The pages helped my preschooler work on his addition AND number formation.  My kindergartener practiced her subtraction skills.  
At school, the students made butterfly life cycle flip books.  They were easy to assemble and also provided students with some cutting and gluing practice!  

Since our pocket chart was occupied, we used the scrambled sentences as a literacy center activity.  Here, students worked in pairs to correctly assemble and read butterfly-themed sentences.  These offered some wonderful practice for punctuation, capitalization, and sight words.  

I added the clothespin addition activity to our math center.  My coworker had these cute, mini clothespins that were just perfect!  Colorful butterflies to count AND teeny tiny clothespins made this a very appealing choice!  

These were just a few of the activities included in the "Butterfly Life-Cycle Cross-Curricular Mega Pack" from Life Over C's.  CLICK on the title to take a look at this almost 100-page product that includes everything from write the room and graphing activities to patterns and a noun/verb sort!

Now for the FLASH FREEBIE!  Since Friday the 23rd is my LAST DAY OF SCHOOL, I decided to do a flash freebie to celebrate during the hop!  Once again, my flash freebie is a science game.  This time, it's a science board game that includes facts about butterflies (a $3 value, Grades K-2)!  This has been such a hit in my classroom that I think YOU need a copy for your students, too!  CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO GRAB A COPY!
