I was recently puzzled as how to engage my ESL student (age 5-6) during the class so they have an activity that will help them develop their sensory, imaginative and language skills.
I remember reading about the hand printing project to make a spider. So I came up with an idea to make a butterfly. Of course it is not a usual butterfly, as you will see below. But the kids had fun and they learned to say the following: “This is my butterfly. It is colorful. It can fly. I want to be a butterfly”.
– A piece of paper
– Crayons, markers of color pencils
Have a child trace 4 fingers (except the thumb) on two opposite sides of the paper, leaving the space to draw the body. Then draw the body, draw the head. Have fun coloring the butterfly!
Enjoy and thank you for reading my blog!
