In the Mailbox: butterfly jar

Last week I ordered this butterfly jar and it came in the mail today!

I found this little gem from Surviving a Teacher’s Salary and for some crazy reason, I bought it!

I plan to take it to preschool for my very own show and tell. The butterfly isn’t real but it looks almost real. It flitters around in the jar when you tap on the lid or when the lid gets some extra vibration. Here is a little video I took of the butterfly in the jar…

I wont be able to leave the jar out for the children to freely play with for several reasons..

  • The jar is real glass
  • The lid can be removed and if it gets removed, it will likely break the wire that is used to make the butterfly move
  • I really love this silly thing and want it to keep working

So I will just save is as a great way to introduce butterflies or when we talk about starting our own collections…

Be sure to check out the butterfly sensory bags in case you missed it!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
