Our butterflies have arrived!! Our class has been
watching and waiting ever since our caterpillars
arrived. First they were tiny caterpillars. We
watched them grow and build their chrysalis around
their bodies. We waited………and we waited………….and
waited. Finally, three of our four chrysalis’ opened
and out came beautiful
This week’s letter was K. Those bringing show and
tell for K were: Macy, who brought chocolate kisses
for the whole class; Carley, who brought a Koala
bear, a king, keys, and a Kleenex.
Our field trip to the museum has been
postponed. The students were disappointed. However,
they are looking forward to next week’s trip to the
zoo. We can’t wait!
We are studying Chinese New Year this week. Our
room is decorated with paper lanterns and dragons.
Each student was given a lai see (a little red
envelope) to put paper money in. The students have
until next Thursday to collect as much paper money
as they can. When the student is “caught being
good”, a paper dollar will be placed in their lai
see. The boy and girl with the most dollars will be
able to trade their money in for something. Good
luck to everyone!
| Spring has sprung in
our classroom! We have been studying about the life
cycles of chickens, butterflies, and plants. Four of
our caterpillars have formed their chrysalis. We are
keeping an observation journal of our caterpillars'
changes. Our plants have sprouted, hopefully we will
soon have flowers, carrots, radishes, and onions!
Our chicks are set to hatch at the first of May. We
have also been studying the letter Xx. We had some
great show and tell for Xx. Dalton brought X-men.
Taylor brought an x-ray of her dad. Isaac brought an
x-ray of his brother's teeth. Kalee brought Xx's.
Addison brought a picture of an x-ray that her
sister had drawn. Amy brought Extra gum. Cade
brought Germ-x and x-rays of his head and face.
Harper brought a Texans helmet and Extra gum. Haiden
brought an x-ray of his spine. Jeremiah brought
pictures of a xylophone, fox, and a box. Chaney
brought a huge Xylophone and an x card. Fallon
brought a xylophone. Good job boys and girls!
We celebrated Easter on Friday, April 22nd.

Passmore and T.J. Son, as well as other
kindergarten boys, anxiously await the
Easter Egg Hunt at Sloan Hendrix
Kindergarten. The girls had hidden the eggs
for the boys to find.
|Easter was alot of fun for Mrs. Adams'
kindergarten. Thursday, we dyed eggs. But also
Thursday, students watched as 4 kinds of eggs were
cooked--boiled, scrambled, fried and poached.
Students then tasted each kind of egg. Then, a math
graph was made to determine which kind was most
liked. As it turns out, poached was the favorite.
Students loved how soft is was and also nongreasy.
The egg hunt was Friday and thank goodness the
weather held out till after it was over. Students
found around 800 eggs on the playground. What an
adventure! Thanks to the parents who braved the
hunt. Mr. Bryce Baldridge, of the Lawrence County
Extension Office, came to check on the egg hatching
project. Everything is going as planned. Our
butterflies have made their chrysalis and are in the
habitat waiting on their birth.

about how his process works and showed students
a film about hatching eggs at a big, huge level
in Batesville. The chicks should make an
appearance around May 3. Mrs. Patrea Son brought
one of her son, T.J.'s, kittens to class.
Students really enjoyed seeing the bobtail

class is busy getting ready for the Easter Egg
hunt, Friday April 22. Students have been
keeping picture journals of the caterpillars.
Friday, April 15, it looked like some were

We started our week off by getting a new
student. Zoey comes from Pocahontas school. We
now have twenty students. We have eleven boys
and nine girls.
We are so
glad testing is over. We celebrated our success

the pleasure of watching one of our very own
show her calf, Bandit. Carley Morgan and Bandit
won Reserve Grand Champion Friday at the Spring
Fling Show. Carley also showed a goat and won
Grand Champion. We were there to cheer her on
and we are so proud of her!
Our class enjoyed
listening to a story read by Ms. Lyna Meeks and
Mrs. Linda Campbell from H.I.P.P.Y. Ms. Lyna is
a home-based educator, while Mrs. Campbell is
not only the coordinator but one of our
student’s grandmother. Lucia Dial was very

beautiful purple wings. Finishing out the letter

Construction workers pour cement using crane
and hose. Students in Mrs. Deanna Adams
Kindergarten were just fascinated with how
workers poured cement. Mrs. Adams stated, "I
think students would have just stood and
watched all day. The cement coming out of
the hose was really great to watch."
||Camron Passmore celebrated his birthday this
past week. Congratulations to Camron. This week
students learned all about magnets. Students loved
the magnet balls and wands the best. Our class also
received our caterpillars. The class is excited to
watch them and can't wait till they go to the next
stage. This week kindergarten will be setting eggs
to hatch with the help of Bryce Baldridge of the
Extension Service. Students will learn how many days
it takes to hatch, watch a film from the supplier
about hatching eggs at the plant and each student
will set an egg.
