Last time, we said that with encouragement from her teacher and classmates, Iris was able to have more confidence in herself. She not only participated in the drawing competition, but even won the first prize!
On this day, though, in class, Jimmy and his classmates were playing in the hall and suddenly saw Teacher Rolin carrying a few small caterpillars. None of them had ever seen a caterpillar before, so they were very curious about these little bugs. Victor looked at them and said, “Teacher, what are they?” Teacher Rolin replied, “These are called caterpillars. They are a kind of insect.”
To let everyone see the caterpillars better, Teacher Rolin put them on the table. Everyone gathered around and looked closely at the caterpillars, and even imitated their movements.
Victor was especially interested in the little creatures, and asked Teacher Rolin, “What do they eat? And why are they so furry?” Teacher Rolin patiently answered each one of his questions.
Everyone really liked the caterpillars, and decided they would be the class pets. After a few days, Jimmy discovered the caterpillars had disappeared! Victor began to cry, and ran to Teacher Rolin. He told her, “Teacher, the caterpillars are gone!”
Teacher Rolin smiled and told Victor, “That’s because they became beautiful butterflies and flew away.” Victor didn’t understand, and asked, “Why do caterpillars become butterflies?”
Teacher Rolin explained, “Because just like you, caterpillars grow up, and when they grow up they become butterflies.” Everyone finally understood why the caterpillars had disappeared.
The next day, Pandora and her friends were playing on the playground. What would happen next? We’ll find out next time.
Good night. Sweet dreams.
