As #kbminijournalists, Ms. Washburn’s 4th grade class were given an assignment.
Early last week, they found a dead butterfly while on break in the yard. Students photographed the butterfly and then were asked to write messages to acknowledge the animal’s passing.
Hope you enjoy reading their heartfelt messages.
