Hey everybody! I've been such a bad blogger lately. We are 26 school days away from summer, and things are so busy. I know so many people are counting down to summer, but I am still stressing about all I have to do between now and then. So...sorry if I don't blog as much as normal for the next 5 weeks.
We began to learn about insects this week and we started by looking at butterflies. I started with butterflies, because all of my girls are suddenly obsessed with them. We made this diagram of the life cycle as a class:
We've been watching video clips on Discovery Education. (Does your district subscribe to that website? It is so great, especially to let the kids observe science in action.) And we learned today about the parts of an insect. We labeled those parts on the butterfly:
I know everyone's been talking about Instagram and I missed Teacher Talk Tuesday. I already have an Instagram, and it seemed silly to make a second one for my blog, so you can follow me @danielle_faerber. Hopefully I'll keep up with that, even if I can't stay on top of blogging this month. Clutter-Free Classroom has a great photo-a-day list, too, that I'm going to try to do, too.
Good luck to everyone starting testing this week!
