Little Sprouts Tuesday April 21st


Check out the butterflies I found on a walk today.  I think that they are called Painted Lady Butterflies.


Look at the pictures below. They show many different types of butterflies, with many different colours! One box has Painted Ladies like the ones I saw on my walk. Count how many of each butterfly is in each box. Point to the correct number. Write it on a piece of paper.

purchased from our friends at Linda’s Loft for Little Learners.

Did you find out that all of the groups of butterflies have 9? If you want to print the number “9” try saying this as you print, ‘A loop and then a line, that makes the number nine’.

Can you find a collection of ‘9’ things in your house? Maybe you can find 9 stuffed animals, or 9 shoes (hmmmm what shoe doesn’t have a partner?), or maybe 9 spoons!


You can send me a picture of your collection of 9 things…or, you can listen to one of my favourite books about forest animals. Or, you can do both!

I love listening to a great story!


Think back to the story we read about the Very Hungry Caterpillar. He was so hungry when he hatched, that he ate too much fruit! I found this graphing game about the same caterpillar (from Pre-K Printable Fun). Give it a try!

Print out the “dice” and fold it into a cube, roll and record or color in the squares to make a graph.  Which one has the most? Which one has the least? Do any have the same amount? Record the numbers at the bottom of the page.

Make a hopscotch either outside with chalk or inside with tape. If your child knows 1-10 well, try the numbers 10-20.  It’s a great game to remember the teen numbers.  Jump with one foot, and two feet. You can also throw a small object or coin to see what number to jump to. Try to say the number as you jump to that number.
