It’s so hard to believe it’s already spring time! The flowers are starting to bloom and butterflies are fluttering everywhere outside, we’re even taking care of some of our own if you haven’t heard. It’s been almost two weeks since our little friends, the caterpillars came crawling into class and before we even had a chance to blink they weren’t little caterpillars anymore but chrysalises! Soon we hope to see the butterflies flying around our own little butterfly net, at least for the first few days before we release them!
Speaking of changes have you had a chance to spend the afternoons outside!? We know that Ms. Billie and Ms. Melissa have so many fun things planned for us each an everyday, but we can’t spend all day inside doing work! So we make sure to remind them that we need some important play time outside each an everyday. Some days we need those heavy coats, but lately it’s been perfect!
Late last month we had the opportunity to learn all there is about outer space! Comets and planets were on the agenda and we got to color our very own rocket! Curious George had a chance to complete a very important mission into space, taking his very own rocket for a spin in space! 3, 2, 1! BLAST OFF!
It’s very important to thank our friends and family everyday, but we learned that we have more than them to thank. Community helpers are always there when we need them the most, from the police men that helps us cross the street, to the fire fighter who keeps us safe by instructing us how to act when there’s a fire! Some of us may choose to be a doctor to help people or a veterinarian to help our four legged friends. All we can say is thank you for all the work you do for us in the community and thanks for letting us take a look from your point of view, we sure have some big shoes to fill when we grow up!
While we’re waiting for our caterpillar friends to morph into butterflies, Ms. Amanda showed up with another surprise! With spring comes new life and each class was presented with our very own chicken egg! Now we know what you might be thinking and no it’s not for breakfast, our egg friends are sitting in this contraption called an incubator, kind of like a little oven to keep them warm like they were with their mommy. From what we heard it takes 21 days from the eggs to turn into chick and we’re just passed the half way mark! We can’t wait to meet our new egg-cellent friends! Now all we have to do now is think of a good name, any suggestions?
Last but not least we have two holidays just around the corner! One’s coming up quicker than we imagined and we’re finishing up and getting ready for it. PURIM! We’ve prepped masks and groggers. We even had time to make some Hamentashen, boy were they yummy! We managed to save some and take it home to our families. We look forward to dress up with the whole school and march in a parade, it’s such an exciting time! What will we wear!?
Purim is great fun and all but an even more important celebration is just at our door step: Passover. We have a lot of preparations to do in a short time but it’s sure to be one we won’t forget!
That about wraps it up! So good-bye for now from the Doobonim class!
