If you happened to miss our class meeting today, I shared in the video below some memories throughout the year, and read a last day poem. Congratulations…you are officially first graders!
It’s our last day of kindergarten!! I hope you’ll be able to join us for a class meet today to say goodbye and share some of our favorite memories.
AM Class Google Meet–at 10:00 am.
PM Class Google Meet– at 1:00 pm.
Day 22-Throughout the day on Saturday, 4 more butterflies emerged. 5 total butterflies by the end of Day 22.
As I took a VIDEO of our first butterfly flapping his wings (right), along with 2 newly emerged butterflies (left)…I noticed this chrysalis start to move!
So I quickly started a new video, and saw our 4th butterfly come out of the chrysalis!! Two butterflies are very close by and hanging on as their wings dry. VIDEO
Unfortunately, one of our butterflies fell after emerging from his chrysalis. He was laying on his back in the Meconium drops on the bottom. I was able to get him to the net to hang on as his wings dried, but the right wing never formed correctly (it looked crumpled).
Day 23-The last 2 butterflies emerged. 7 total butterflies. I put a cylinder container of sugar water in, with a cotton ball through the middle of the lid. Butterflies can land and drink the sugar water from the cotton ball. In past years the butterflies would always be sitting there to drink, but I didn’t notice any this year.
Day 25-Tuesday, May 26th. 6 butterflies are ready to be released outdoors! Sadly, the butterfly with the crumpled wing is not looking too good, and cannot fly. 🙁

***Day 21 Update-WE HAVE OUR FIRST BUTTERFLY! (The red liquid is not blood, it is called Meconium. It is the leftover coloring and tissues from the butterfly’s metamorphosis.)
Kindergarten’s favorite memories 🙂
Kindergarten can use their 5 senses during writing!

Here is today’s fun Friday read aloud: The Little Red Fort.
Ruby plans and builds a fort without the help of her lazy brothers. What do you think will happen when the fort is finished?

Day 14- By Friday night, we finally had the last caterpillar form a chrysalis. 7 chrysalides!
Day 16- I was able to transfer them carefully to the butterfly net.
Day 17- I was surprised yesterday when some of them began shaking a lot! Shaking is a natural instinct to ward off predators. Some shake, some do not. Day 17 Video
Have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for all of your hard work (students and families)! 🙂
Sight word fun and magic “e”!!

Here is our fun Friday read aloud: The Three Little Superpigs
Can your child identify 3D shapes? Here is an extra 3D shape review.
Yesterday morning, the caterpillar that was in the “J” shape is now in a chrysalis! More caterpillars are starting to hang upside down.
Day 12- One chrysalis: Video 1
A little later in the day: Video 2
Day 13- Today there are five chrysalides; one caterpillar in a “J” shape, one still slowly crawling around (I think he will go upside down soon!)
