Butterfly Release

Monarchs On The Move


We’ve been waiting since the first day of school for this moment.

Ms. Cyndy gently helped them out with a pencil.

The monarch butterfly is such a beautiful creature.

We learned the dots on their backs tell us if they are boys or girls.

Each butterfly perched on the flowers for a bit.


At first, we were a little nervous about getting too close.

Butterflies flap their wings many times to get ready for take-off.

Out comes another.

Some struggled to make their way out of the jar.

Flapping faster and faster.

Up, up and away they go!
