Butterfly Buddies

Every Friday we have book buddies with Grade Primary Borden. We have been showing the students how to read by doing a picture walk first and then looking for high frequency words in the book. We then read several books together. This week there was a change to our regular routine and we went outside to release butterflies that had been taken care of by the primaries. There were over 30 Painted Lady butterflies in Ms. Borden's class alone. Ms. Sampson's class had Monarch butterflies. James was so excited to hold a Monarch butterfly. Most of our class was outside in the rain without jackets or umbrellas.

This Painted Lady landed on Holly's hand and got used to the freedom of being outside for a couple of minutes.
