It was butterfly week in Early School! We heard books of this magical transformation of caterpillar to butterfly like the famous Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” We made a sweet caterpillar from the story and we will use it to adorn our bulletin board.

Your child can now name all the stages of a butterfly’s life in order. The boys and girls demonstrated this in a project made of all things…… PASTA! Can you name the pasta shape and stage it represented?: Orzo (egg), Rotini (caterpillar), Shell (chrysalis) and Farfalle (butterfly). All placed on a plate to show the cycle……..just too cute!

We covered the letters Q and R and made a queen and a rabbit for the letter crafts! The children learned the purpose of a question mark.

Next week, it’s on to the subject of seeds and how plants grow. Bring some seeds to school next week and we will make a poster on Friday of the different types of seeds . No need to buy them, just save the seeds from the fruit or vegetables you eat.

Have a super week ahead.
