Today we set our 5 butterflies free that we watched and studied since they were eggs. The butterflies didn't want to leave the warmth and safety of the kids' hands, but we wished them luck and said some kind words at their release ceremony. (officiated by Trey) Here are a few pictures!
In reading, we are in our last unit, Fantasy. We are reading aloud The Girl Who Drank the Moon as our mentor text and we are loving it! It's so amazing to hear the predictions and connections being made, these conversations are the reasons I love this grade!
In writing, Mr. Austin is continuing opinion writing and the students will be participating in upcoming debates. I am excited to hear both sides of the issues they present and see if I can be persuaded!
Here area a few pictures of recess fun after Science testing. It was nice to hear the students say they actually liked the test and think they did very well! They deserved this beautiful day.
