What’s happening at Waterford?

Butterflies!

Our kindergarten classes each studied the life cycle of a butterfly, patiently observing several caterpillars as they changed from the pupa into a butterfly.  They looked for patterns, discussed what they saw, drew pictures and compared them from one day to the next.  After the caterpillars transformed into beautiful butterflies, Mrs. Schaefer, Miss Dick, Mrs. Damer, Mrs. Meyer, and the kids went outside to let them fly free. Below are the links to a short video of that experience.

It is a tale that celebrates originality, difference, and uniqueness. It is a book that lends itself to the lively exploration of a place and an activity that are at the center of young people’s lives: school and learning.
