Tippi Toes Video - May 2, 2019     

We explored more into Spring this week and also learned about Lag B’Omer. The children created a paper maché cocoon. Once it was completely dry, we cut a slit in the cocoon & placed a beautiful silk butterfly inside. The children were excited to see the butterfly appear from the cocoon! Since we have been reading Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the children have a better understanding of the life cycle. They’ve learned many new words as well. Next week we will planting & learning how to care for our plants.
