Releasing the Butterflies
The Toddler 2 students were full of joy when they finally released their butterflies on the playground today. After weeks of caring for them as caterpillars, waiting patiently while they were in their chrysalises and observing them fly around the butterfly habitat in the classroom, they were delighted to let them fly free on a beautiful spring morning. It was a wonderful experience for the Toddlers to observe the entire life cycle, and we wish our butterflies good luck as their journey continues!
Having explored the Geometric Solids for several weeks, many Toddler 2 students can now confidently identify everything from a cone to an ovoid. This week, they enjoyed matching these three dimensional shapes to some of their real-life counterparts. They were delighted to discover that a can of soup is shaped like a cylinder, for example, and that a familiar egg-shaker from Music class is actually an ovoid.
The Toddler 2 students enjoyed snacks, games and fun with their Toddler 1 friends during their end-of-year picnic on the playground. The children played with bubbles, made chalk drawings and danced together during their fun-filled time outside. It was a lovely way to celebrate the end of a wonderful year!
