Review what's on learning poster so far.

Book: The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

Poem: untitled
Let's go to sleep," the little caterpillar said,
As they tucked themselves into their beds.
They will awaken by and by,
And each one will be a lovely butterfly.
~Author Unknown
Song: The Caterpillar Song (tune: "I'm a Little Teapot") I had a hard time fitting this words to this tune, but we went with it anyway.
Once I was a caterpillar
crawling on the ground.
Then I spun a chrysalis,

and wrapped it all around.
Then one day the sun shone,

and warmed me all inside,

Slowly slowly I emerged,

I could no longer hide.

I soaked in the sunshine
for a long long while,
Then I tried my brand new wings,
And it made me smile!

Now I'm a little butterfly,

colorful and bright,

You might see me if you look

outside when it's light.
Activity: butterfly memory game for Eli/matching for Hannah
Activity: do-a-dot art with butterfly worksheet

we were having so much fun with the new do-a-dot markers we did this little guy too
Bible lesson: Review memory verse and song. Jesus in the tomb.
After Jesus died they wrapped him up, put him in a tomb, and three days later he came out again brand new. Read Bible story.

Craft: waxed paper butterfly. this didn't turn out nearly as nice I'd hoped. It would be prettier with pinks and lighter colors but we didn't have those to grate apart.
