Mrs. Karpinski as ‘Madame Butterfly’! She and her class did a wonderful job caring for and raising monarchs from eggs. Her students sang songs and recited poetry and made the day extra special!

      Dariel,
      I will try to do a release with you this year. We will probably have a butterfly release when the black swallowtails come out!

      Any more questions?

    Wow! That looks like great fun being able to raise and set free the butterflies so that they can migrate. Thankyou for commenting on our blog at mrweatherill.edublogs.org, Ms. Lenahan.

    Do you konw that my favourite are those butterflies and they have been for years although I have never seen one in real life they’re much bigger than I thought they were! They have such amazing colours too!

      @Ella,
      Hi Ella! Thanks for the comments from all the way on the other side of the world. We had a terrific time releasing our monarchs. Between all the classes, we released well over 100 monarchs that day! Do you like monarch butterflies too?

      Lee’sa,
      I am glad you have seen a lot of monarchs this year! I am sure you are seeing many that are migrating to Mexico. Did you know that monarchs travel the same paths that birds use when they migrate?

      I am hoping this weather warms up to above 55 degrees so I can release the last of our butterflies. I want them to have a chance to make it to Michoacan, Mexico!

      Adam,
      Thanks for stopping by! Which blog site are you writing about? I checked out your Edublog site and didn’t see the ‘new stuff’ you wrote about.

    It was fantastic! I loved it when Mrs.Staurt Smith was all crazy about if there was a monarch on her hand and everything. And I also loved the poems and songs. I didn’t had a chance to recite my poem. But oh well. But I could write it down.

    It looks like it was a huge success! I wish that I could have been there to share in the excitement of releasing and saying bon voyage to all the monarchs the school worked so hard to raise. I know it was a lot of work and well worth the reward. You all did a fantastic job and should feel most proud of the efforts that you put forth!
