This morning, Uncle Chip surprised us with another visit. In the picture, Uncle Chip is telling his story of how his finger got cut off, for at least the tenth time. This time it's the truth! Or is it? Who knows! He has a different story each time he comes.
He picked the book Stella Luna to read to us. We love it when Uncle Chip comes. His energy and enthusiasm is amazing!

We've got some very well known rock stars in our classroom today. They know how to work the cameras as well!
Today is dress like a rock star day. We are supporting our third through fifth graders as they get ready for TCAP. We want them to "Rock the test!" TCAP is a time to "show off" everything that they've learned so far in school. We wish them the very best luck, and we know they will do an awesome job!

Last week, we received baby caterpillars to raise in our classroom. We named them and put them in a safe container where they could eat and begin their transformation from caterpillar to butterfly. Today, some of the caterpillars were positioned in their J shape, while others had started to make a chrysalis. We are learning so much by watching their life cycles unfold right in front of our eyes. Soon, we will have seven beautiful butterflies to release into the world.
