The children are entranced with our caterpillars that arrived on Monday.  We are making observations, since that is something that good scientists do, as they grow and change.  So far our caterpillars are still in the caterpillar stage, but they have grown to almost twice the size they were on Monday.  Perhaps next week we will be able to transfer the chrysalides into the net butterfly habitat.  Once the butterflies hatch, we will only keep them a couple of days before releasing them into nature.

Keeping an eye on our baby caterpillars has helped us build gratitude for our own mothers.   For those of you who will celebrate Mothers' Day this Sunday, Happy Mothers' Day!  I sent links to each of you of the e-books the children made on the ipad using Scribble Press.  If your link didn't work or you didn't receive the message, please let me know so that I can resend it.   Many thanks to Ms. Bohn for organizing this ipad project for us.

Looking ahead, please mark your calendars for the First Grade Minibeast Musical Extravaganza on Tuesday, June 12.  I think the show will be at 2:30 pm, but I will definitely keep you posted with more information as we get closer to this exciting event. 

Thank you, as always, for your continued support.  I hope you have a great weekend!
