The Bee and Bye Bye Butterflies

Today was packed with things to do. We had our class spelling bee to determine who would continue on to our 3rd grade spelling bee next Friday. Pictured are the top three spellers with the others that will join them for the big event next Friday. Everyone did a great job!

Then, we let our painted lady butterflies go free to continue their life cycle.It's supposed to be a nice weekend, so they should do well. The class had a great time watching the larva form their chrysalis and then become beautiful butterflies. Of course four of them emerged on the weekend and the fifth emerged while we enjoyed the butterfly exhibit at the Milwaukee Museum! Thanks to Michael's family for treating us to this experience.

It's Museum Time!

These photos were sent by Jonathan's mom.

Today the third grade headed to the Milwaukee Public Museum to learn new things and review things learned this year. The butterfly exhibit was a hit as always! Nick is waiting in his chrysalis to become a beautiful butterfly!

The butterflies were active today and happy to land.
The guys ham it up in front of the T-Rex.
