Description

This craft is a hands-on and engaging activity that will see students produce a colourful butterfly while developing their 1-10 number knowledge.

Using the templates provided, students will construct a butterfly. They will then count a collection of dots or craft materials to decorate their butterfly’s wings. The number of dots or decorations can be recorded on the sentence template. Students will practise a range of important skills during this activity, including cutting, assembling, pasting, counting, designing and writing.

This resource includes:

  1. Detailed instructions
  2. Butterfly templates (we have included a cut-and-paste craft option and a print-and-go option)
  3. Dot template
  4. Sentence templates (multiple options included to suit the needs of your class)
  5. Display banner

Besides the templates included, we also recommend providing A3 paper for gluing the completed butterflies on. If you want your students to decorate their butterflies with craft items instead of the dots, we recommend using coloured dot stickers, sequins, pom poms or buttons. Display the completed crafts alongside the included banner!

Sure to engage and delight your students, this lesson will assist with developing counting fluency and fine motor skills.

It’s time to get creating and counting!
