Benefits of Children's Names all Around the Playroom

Above is a video I shot today of one of my preschoolers. He turned 2 May 2. He recognizes the names of his friends at school because the names are placed all over the playrooms. (Table they eat and do crafts at, hanging from the ceiling, hanging in 2 different pocket charts, sign in board, bins for shoes and clothes, and papers and crafts they work on during the week... :)
I just wanted to share.... Awesome job.

Our Butterflies

Our butterflies emerged from their coocoons overnight. We kept them in their little butterfly house for a day to watch them.... We then took them outside to let them fly away. They didn't want to leave. I think they liked us. We did have plenty of time to watch them flutter about in their open house, and one by one they left us to go explore their new world. How fun to watch.. I think we're going to try ladybugs next. :)

Our Cocoons

Our caterpillars built their little cocoons and we put them in the butterfly house this morning. We had to be so careful to make sure they didn't fall. Now to wait for them to emerge as beautiful butterflies. :)

Caterpillars to Butterflies

This week and next week our theme is "Caterpillar to Butterflies". Here is one of our caterpillars blooming into a beautiful red butterfly. :)

Mother's Day.... :)

Last week was our Mother's Day week... We spend the week making fun gifts for mom to receive on Mother's Day....
