Welcome Butterflies! Last week, our painted lady butterflies emerged from their chrysalises as healthy, adult butterflies. This week, we will be observing these creatures and comparing them to their younger selves. If we are lucky, we will also get to observe butterfly mating behaviors and celebrate the eggs they might leave us before we release them next week. They love eating fresh fruits, feel free to send us a slice of something tasty with your child's snack!
Spring time is a wonderful time to get out of our classroom and explore the world. As a result, we have planned several field trips this spring. If you are interested in chaperoning any or all of these events, please let me know. I will do my best to accommodate as many parents as possible. Thanks!
