The Butterflies Are Free
After a solemn ceremony, in which we each talked about our favourite thing about the butterflies, we let them fly free near our school. We had talked about the fact that butterflies have a liquid diet of nectar, so the children cleverly picked dandelions to attract them. It was one of those times you never want to forget--and we have a video so that we won't.
The parents have been very positive about what we are doing. In fact, I have blogged with six different grade one classes now, and have only had one parent express disappointment that we were doing it. Parents in general love to see what is going on in their child's school.

It's so great that you use all of this technology, like a digital camera, video editing, YouTube and a blog, but still manage to get the kids outside and interacting with nature.
Out of curiosity, how do parents generally respond when they find out about the blog? I would imagine that some would be excited while others a bit more skeptical.
