6 Butterflies!

That is correct we now how 6 butterflies. I am so excited! I was beginning to think they wouldn’t come out of their Chrylsalis. I made a video so you could see them in their house. To be honest Macy’s (morning class) chrysalis starting hatching before our chrysalis (see the picture below). I am going to release the butterflies tomorrow and have scheduled a special meet so that you can see it. The meet is scheduled for 3:00 PM and I will be releasing the butterflies about 3:15. The 15 minutes will give me a little time to get everything set up. This is not a requirement, just an opportunity. Also Carter’s Granddmother (from the afternoon class) shared pictures from her butterfly garden. I have posted those below too.

Butterfly release meet at 3:00.

This is the last week of school. There are review items and math goal activities on the Kindergarten Learning Page. They are at the bottom of the page from last week.

Our final meet is scheuduled for Thursday. Special guests will be joining us. You do not want to miss this one!

Morning Meet at 10:00

Afternoon Meet at 2:30

Hope you can make the Meets this week!

Transferred Chrysalis to the butterfly net

Today I transferred our chrysalis to the butterfly net. Here is a video that I recorded. It is not the best quality but I tried! I am hoping at least one comes out by Thursday. One chrysalis fell when I transferred the paper over. That one looked very close to coming out and was even moving.

I received a few pictures of what you did last Thursday for the Race for Education. I would love to see more!

Also parents if you have any pictures of our activities we did in the classroom can you send them my way, please?

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday.

This is the last Monday of the school year. I am sure you are ready for it to be over. The last few months have not been easy for any of us and I appreciate all you have done to help you child be successful.

I have been cleaning up the classroom. I found a watch. It appears as if it is a boy’s watch. Please let me know if it belongs to your child.

As always I loved seeing you all today. If you were not able to make it today, I hope to see you next week.

I would love to see your completed butterfly so, please send me a picture of it when you are finished coloring it.. I have already seen a few and they are beautiful. I will share the ones I get tomorrow.

My post about nonsense words has raised some questions. I recorded a BRIEF video about how to practice nonsense words. This video and nonsense word practice will “live” on the resource’s page. If you look at the top of the blog post you can see the different pages. The resource page is one of those pages.
