Here's what we did today!

What a productive day we had!  This morning we spent time looking at monarch caterpillars.  Boy are they getting big!  Did you know Monarch caterpillars shed their skin four times?  We learned that today when we watched a short you tube video: Monarch Life Cycle Students took notes on what they learned in their itty bitty butterfly journals.  
In addition to looking at monarch caterpillars, we spent time discussing variables and values in math.  When we discussed the variable food, students shared their values.  I bet you didn't know we have a lot of kids that like bacon!  
This afternoon we visited the school library and participated in a lesson with Mrs. Stone.  With our reminders, she was able to generate a list of library rules.  In addition, we got to read the book Calvin Can't Fly: The Story of a Bookworm Birdie by Jennifer Berne.
