Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding The Butter Bees - Section 2: Reading the Book


I enjoy reading this story.  It can be used for older classes as to how to "Be" a better person.  For kinders I use it as a fun story about friendship, honesty and love.  I read the book and teach the students to sing the "Buzz, hum, Buzz, hum, Buzz hum, hum hum hum."  I love to involve them in the story.  I ask them to watch and be ready to sing.  Singing is how the butterfly and bee talk to each other.  We talked about how they became friends and how Bonnie Bee got in trouble.  Bennie Butterfly was so sad when Bonnie got in trouble with the Queen.  But they were both so happy to find each other again and get married.  They had two children, but they were not butterflies or bees, they were a combination of both.  They had so much fun collecting nectar for honey and flying around.  And in this story they lived happily ever after.
