During the month of February we predicted if Punxsutawney Phil would see his shadow or not on Groundhog Day. We learned that our predictions don’t always come true. The seniors helped us make a pop-up groundhog with a cup. We also got to play “Hit the Pin” with the seniors in the gym. It was so much fun. We love when they visit us. We also learned about the life cycle of a butterfly. We made butterflies with coffee filters by dying them with food colors. We also learned about how colors change when we mix them together. We are beginning to...
