Today was filled with excitement! After reading many of the postcards we received over Winter Break, we opened a special box that came to Miss Wolfe's mailbox with the words LIVE MATERIALS marked on the side of the box. We made many guesses about what could be in the box. Sadly, it was not a puppy, kitten, tarantula, butterfly or snake. Instead it was a container of little worms called mealworms. Miss Wolfe said we would watch these creatures go through a metamorphosis similar to that of the caterpillar, but our mealworms would not become butterflies, but instead beetles. Tomorrow we are going to research mealworms and find out what they will become as we watch them go through their life cycle. Although not as exciting as a puppy, kitten, tarantual, butterfly or even a snake, which would be exciting, our class is very excited to build a habitat for our mealworms and watch them as they grow and change.
We also had an exciting afternoon celebrating our growth as writers. We shared with a partner a story we had written, edited, revised and fancied up with color. Our partners told us what they loved about our writing. Then we rolled out the red carpet and watched as our writers and their partner walked down the red carpet to be interviewed by Miss Wolfe, who also was the photographer for the red carpet event. Our partners told about what we were doing well as authors. It was very exciting. Look for pictures on the website soon.
