We had some fun stuff going on recently at both Scarlett's and Holden's schools. Scarlett's class had a butterfly release party. They raised 27 baby caterpillars, which then formed chrysalises and turned into monarch butterflies and the class released them so they could fly off to warm Mexico. For the release, the class dressed up as butterflies.
A few of the kids made "wishes" for the butterflies and Scarlett's wish was displayed for everyone to see. Cute, huh? (And, so you know, the flower is Scarlett's symbol at school. Many Pre-K's assign symbols before children learn to read so they can use sight recognition, which is one of the first steps of reading, to determine what belongs to them and what belongs to other students.)
