So I'm very disappointed! I totally had a post planned of all kinds of randomness with all kinds of pics but left my camera at school. Oh man! Well, I only had these 3 pics on my phone so this is what you get tonight. :)
We finally had to take our plants home because they needed to be re-potted! They all turned out so well!
Here are our "painted ladies". They are finally all in their chrysalis. My firsties CANNOT wait until they emerge! Much anticipated excitement!
Oh - FUNNY STORY - so we found a caterpillar on my husband's truck and we kept him and brought him to school. He was fat and very hairy. My students instantly named him Hairy! So I knew Hairy should be trying to change into his chrysalis soon and would need a way to be able to hang upside down. So I try to "rig" a way for him to be able to get to the top of his little "bug catcher" we had him in. I spent about 30 minutes after school one day last week working on it. My daughter and I came to school and we could not see Hairy ANYWHERE in his little cage. We finally spot what looks like a wad of silk inside a leaf on the bottom of the cage. My students look up pics of cocoons/chrysalis's online and figure out he must be a moth instead of a butterfly. So we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of a moth now. Wow! Who knew?
Ok - CONFESSION TIME! I am a fairly organized person and fall a bit on the OCD side of neatness, but there is a corner of my room that I pile things up when I don't have time to take care of them. Does anyone else have a corner that looks like this?
Please tell me you do! When I look at this mess my skin almost crawls but I can't seem to find the time to tackle it very often. There always seem to be more "pressing" things to take care of. I would love to hear of other teachers that keep a "corner" like this! (Mainly because I want to feel better about myself! :) )
Hopefully I will remember my camera tomorrow and can add to the randomness of this post! Happy Monday and have a great week of teaching!
