Hello K1 Families,
The children may have mentioned our caterpillar friends in K1. We've been observing the caterpillars and watching them grow for a few weeks now. They have finally formed into to their chrysalis. Now we are patiently waiting and very excited for our butterflies to arrive! We are also watching as our seeds (planted in soil and in bags!!) grow before our eyes. Very exciting!
