squiggly, wiggly, jiggly WORMS

We have been learning so much about our natural world this month! We were lucky enough to watch two groups of butterflies as they moved through the life cycle. from caterpillar, to chrysalis, to observing the butterflies emerge - it was a wonderful process to witness. Of course we freed our winged friends and waved goodbye. We only went two days before getting some new friends in our class. This time they're not insects but invertebrates...worms! That's right we are compsoting in our own classroom with the help of 1,000 Red Wiggler worms. Children are very excited to gently touch them and watch them "dance."

Here's a great viseo about a boy, Kevin, who loves to compost. Watch him compost at home!
