The last, the very last,
Such, such a yellow
For seven weeks I’ve lived in here,
That butterfly was the last one.

Give the students many sheets of colorful paper, glitter, glue, scissors and string. (Any decorative items will do.) Have the students create a butterfly that is a representative of the author of their own poem. Students should write the name of their child on the butterfly if the child’s name is available.
