Class: Caterpillar 2 day M/F

Recap for Week of May 16 and 20

The Caterpillar class had so much fun on our mud day!! We went down the big water slide, dug huge holes and filled them with water, made trenches with bridges made from gutters, made mud pies, created awesome art with water color spray bottles and washed our cars at the Acorn Car Wash; and we had a special snack of popsicles! So much fun!

On Friday we celebrate our Caterpillar classmates that have summer birthdays with a special snack and we will have a fun last day of school playing with playdough, bouncing on hippity hops and playing in the under the sea dramatic play!

We would like to thank all the Caterpillar Class families for such a wonderful year and sharing your wonderful children with us! It has been a pleasure watching our Caterpillar Class come out of their little cocoons and become confident butterflies ready to test their wings!

We hope you all have a wonderful summer and we wish those with some new adventures in new countries next year good luck and we will miss seeing you at The Acorn. And we can’t wait to see our returning Caterpillars next year as Honeybees, Blue Stars, Red Apples, Little Owls and Hummingbirds!

Have a great summer!
