We Have Butterflies!

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine.
~ Jeffrey Glassberg

It was a very exciting week in our classroom, our caterpillars have changed into butterflies!

Right before it emerged

I was able to capture one of the butterflies emerging from its chrysalis, click the link below to watch!

Finally seeing our butterflies has inspired the children to create butterflies using a variety of materials!

A.Bh & S.P. made this picture using pattern blocks

Using paint to again explore symmetry 

Watching metamorphosis has been incredible, and I think the educators are just as excited (if not more so) about the amazing change we have witnessed.
