Honey Bees

I just wanted to give you a quick little post tonight.

We use Scott Foresman as our reading series.  This week's story was "Honey Bees".  We talked about how the cells are shaped like hexagons just like the yellow pattern block we use all the time in math.  We each took a block and traced it to make bee hives.  The kids LOVED it.  I think they really turned out cute!  Take a look:

Isn't she a cutie!

I had to share this little guy's bee.  I thought it was just precious.  

Happy Friday everyone and "Bee" good! :)


  1. Thanks for the idea! We are studying Geometry right now. This would be fun to let my kiddos do as an early finisher activity. Pinning this now. :)

    1. I think it would be great with a geometry unit! It was a lot of fun.

  2. We will be on that story very very soon as well! They seem to enjoy this story every year!! Last year, I made them pollinate with cheetos :) It was fun!
    This activity is super cute. Thanks for sharing.
