One of the Sunflowers favorite authors is Eric Carle. One of his books is called A VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR.  We are in the midst of seeing live how a caterpillar eats a lot and then is full and then builds a chrysalis in order to become a butterfly.  We are fortunate to have two containers of caterpillars eating away at their food getting bigger and bigger.  Every day the class observes any metamorphoses that have occurred over night.  The excitement in the children each day is amazing.  We can not wait to see this excitement grow as the metamorphosis continues.

The children have been busy getting ready for their trip to Israel.  Yom Ha’atzmaut is almost here and the children can not wait to visit some of the many cities in Israel.  Eilat, Yerushalayim, Tzfat, and Tel- Aviv to name a few.  In our classroom, the KOTEL is nearly complete.  Everyone is excited to be able to daven there on Thursday.  The children cannot wait to wave their giant flags at our special Yom Haatzmaut celebration

Mother’s Day is nearly here and the children’s faces light up every time we ask them ” what is something special your mom does for you?”  It is wonderful to see how much mom is loved.

Looking forward to the remaining fun and festive week.
