I am going to tell you how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly.
1) First, It starts as a little white egg.
2) Then, It comes out as a baby caterpillar.
3) Next, The caterpillar grows by eating leafs.
4) After that, It climbs a tree and makes a chrysalis.
5) Finally, It eats its way out of the chrysalis and it turns into a butterfly and the butterfly fly’s.
“Ya,” I told you about the butterfly life cycle and this is the real butterfly life cycle and it is fun to learn about butterflies. Do you know that butterflies are a part of nature? What do you know about butterflies? Butterflies are fun to discover. Do you like butterflies? I really like butterflies!

Today we started our last math unit for the year on measurement. Here’s a video showing what we learned in class today:

What can you tell us about measurement? What questions do you have for us? We’d love to hear what you have to say.

I’m so glad that I had the video camera near by as these two students approached the anchor chart for a list and decided if they included everything they needed in their list.

I just wish that I gave them a little more time to answer the last question and didn’t jump in to clarify it. I wonder what they would have shared. My next step: talk less and listen more. I’ll work on this tomorrow, and probably for many more days to come. 🙂


Can you guess any of the people, animals, or storybook characters that we tweeted as today? How do you know that your guess is correct? Please leave us a comment and let us know.

How would you solve these multiplication questions?

How would you solve this problem?

Here are two students assessing their work with the use of the Bump It Up Wall, and explaining how they can make their work better.

Please note that I did not intentionally kill any caterpillars, but when I was putting the lid on one of the containers, the container squished, and I may have scared the caterpillar to death. It was completely accidental though, and the other five caterpillars are all happily in their chrysalises growing into butterflies. The students couldn’t resist sharing on the one accidental death though, and I love how they chose to use the Bump It Up Wall to make their work better.

What other suggestions would you give to them?


Thank you to Mrs. Ryan for coordinating this in-school field trip today. It was a great day of learning! What did you learn from these videos? What did you learn from the field trip today?
