We read about the butterfly life cycle in our anthologies this week so we spent a lot of time sequencing the cycle. We put together this project with a writing to match. You can get the writing page HERE (thank you KPM Digital and DJ inkers!).

We also got to complete our March quilt this week! I love this quilt... seriously too cute! We read the story The Luckiest St. Patrick's Day, talked about the "luck of the Irish" and then came up with ideas of how we are lucky. It took a little prodding and leading but I was finally able to get them to think about the non-material items we are lucky to have...
|ok.. so if you have seen my other quilts, you will notice that this is on a different board... yep, redoing the writing wall.. a post to come on that later|
They made the leprechaun kid with pattern pieces and strips of orange construction paper that they rolled with their pencils. Their writing is under the shamrock as a lift-and-read and we added some green glitter to the shamrocks to spice them up a bit.

Okay.. that's all for now have a great Saturday night and don't forget to fix your clocks!
