We released our butterflies today. Since one of the butterflies emerged from his chrysallis on Friday, it was definitely time to release them. It's been fun to have them in our classroom but we know that they need to be outside in nature!
Yesterday, we went on a field trip to the Chicago Children's Museum. We all had so much fun exploring the museum and then eating our lunch outside on Navy Pier. It was such a beautiful day!
Today, we had our Fly Up Day! Our preschoolers who will remain in preschool next year as our leaders in the classroom, all did a craft project together with their peers from Ms. Kaitlyn's class. Our preschoolers who are moving on to Kindergarten next year, spent some time with Ms. Chavez in the Kindergarten classroom. It was a very fun morning!
This week, we are using yarn that has been cut to our height to compare our height to other items in the classroom. We are finding out how many blocks tall we are, or how many books tall we are.
