Tall milkweed plants line the path to the front door of the home where I teach. On the first day that I came to set up my classroom, the children showed me a monarch caterpillar munching away on the milkweed leaves. Now these beautiful butterflies flutter about as the children play in the yard.
As you can see we have been enjoying lots of books about butterflies this week. Working to bring the outside in and link real-world experiences to information found in our books.
