Butterflies and Beautiful sunshine

Hi everyone! It is so nice outside today. The sun is shining and Spring is most definitely here to stay. We did some alphabet review today all the way up to letter V. David did some tracing work in his workbooks. We are also learning about metamorphasis with a butterfly. It is really neat to watch the process although we have never seen it in real life, only read about it in books. I would love to catch a caterpillar and watch the whole process from beginning to end. Maybe we will be able to do that this spring and summer. We are actually going to try and catch a butterfly today and examine it and then release it back into nature. David glued some macaroni noodles on some construction paper for his arts and crafts today. For P.E. we went outside and did some competition with each other to see who could throw the tennis ball the farthest. My son beat me each time! He is really good at throwing. That is it for today. I will see you all tomorrow.


  1. You can buy the butterfly gardens online where they grow in the various stages to butterfly, then you let them go. I am pretty sure I seen them at Target online, not too expensive either. It has been beautiful with the weather, not too hot like the beginning of the week.

  2. Thanks for letting me know about the butterfly kits Ms. Melissa. That would be really neat to do that together and then release the butterfly.
