At the Wilkins, our third grade classrooms have been busy learning about the life cycle. A few weeks ago, third grade started hosting eggs in an incubator, and this week the eggs started hatching. Many of the chicks have already born, and they are so adorable. In the photo with the eggs in the incubator you can see a chick is just about ready to hatch, the shell is mostly broken. Our chicks will stay at the Wilkins a little longer before they move on to their new home.

There is a lot of buzz about butterflies here at the Jones! Many of our classrooms are learning about butterflies with a variety of approaches. In Mrs. Velozo's classroom, in addition to watching the metamorphosis into adult butterfly from egg right in their own classroom, they have many butterfly stories to choose from and create hands-on butterfly art projects.
