Another one of D's classroom gifts was a bowl full of greens with tiny little butterfly eggs and caterpillars on them that he brought from home. We were lucky to have his mother come in and share more little eggs and caterpillars with our class. Talking about the various stages in the life cycle of the butterfly and examining these early phases up close and personal created great excitement in the class. To think that something so marvelous could come from something so very small is nothing short of extraordinary and miraculous.
