It’s the 15th of the month, and I have a new post at PreK + K Sharing. Today, I have some Montessori-inspired butterfly activities using free butterfly printables … perfect for spring and summer. Here, I’m sharing the links to lots of free butterfly printables for preschoolers through 1st graders (and sometimes older). To keep the list manageable, I’m sharing links that are specifically related to butterflies rather than caterpillars except where the printable focuses on the complete butterfly life cycle.
At PreK + K Sharing, I tell where I found my materials and how I used the printables to prepare Montessori-inspired butterfly activities. I also have links to other posts with additional ideas and presentations.
