Alright, I was planning on posting my Five for Friday last night, but the blog wasn't quite ready for it's debute. BUT the draft was written yesterday so technically I still made it on time! I'm linking up with Doodle Bug for "Five for Friday".
1. The past 2 weeks we learned about the butterfly lifecycle and parts of the butterfly body. We spent this week observing our caterpillars that had turned into chrysalises over the weekend as part of our morning work. So much fun seeing the life cycle in action!
2. We finally had butterflies on Thursday! I wanted to be a cool teacher and hold the butterfly. I do it every year. The kids ooed and ahhed and as soon as I put the butterfly back into its habitat, it began its escape plan. It must have been planning for awhile. I went to put it at the bottom and as I pulled my hand out and started zipping it up, that little sucker shot out! Yep, the class went wild. Thankfully, I was able to catch it and put it safely back into the cage without it getting squished. Teacher fail.
3. In Science we learned about soil. Here the students are observing the properties of soil and sand.
Enjoy your weekend and go link up with Doodle Bugs!
