Why is “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” such a popular book?



Why is “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” such a popular children’s book?

Small babies will just love listening to you read and looking at the pictures. Toddlers will enjoy turning the pages and, after a few readings, “reading” some of the words for you. They will also start to count with you as you read about all the things the caterpillar ate.

I suggest you buy this book if you can, rather than borrowing it from the library-illustrations resemble collages and are simple and colourful.

-The story is about the caterpillar eating, an activity that’s easy for small children to relate to and understand.
-The text is also simple, with lots of repetition which enables littlies to predict what might be going to happen next.
-Another thing children love about The Very Hungry Caterpillar is the holes in the book that make it look as if the caterpillar has eaten his way through the pages.
– There are several educational themes going on: numbers and counting, identifying different foods and the days of the week.
– The book also introduces children to the different life stages of a butterfly.

Why I read to my 3 month old baby


Why I read to my 3 month old baby:
1- My baby won’t understand my words, but hearing my voice stimulates an interest in sounds and helps him develop listening skills.
2- No matter what your baby’s age, reading together is a great opportunity for cuddling and bonding.
3- By developing a regular reading routine from the start, books will become a natural part of my child’s day — one that he’ll associate with fun.
4- Reading to him helps build vocabulary, stimulates imagination, and improves communication skills.
5- Repetition is good because it helps him build language skills. I have been reading the same story for the past week.
6-He may also be fascinated by pictures with bright colors and sharp contrast
You don’t have to get all the way through a book, either. Just taking a few minutes here and there to read aloud to your child can make a difference.

Grade 2 A “Memories”

Today I finished making the Cds for my students to take them as souvenirs. I made a slideshow using all our photos throughout the year and I put music. We watched it together today in class and it got pretty emotional Sad smile It was so sad, but I’m so glad I was able to inspire my students and to see that they really appreciate what I did for them. I love them so much and I wish them the best in life. Until we meet again…

Biography writing


This week, I explained the rules of writing a “Biography” which is a writing about someone’s life. I told my students to research about a famous person that they choose during the Easter vacation and note the important points about the person’s life on a piece of paper. They could also get a picture of this person or decide to draw. They were all really excited about this activity and I loved the variety of famous people they chose.



Bill Gates




Dr. Seuss


Michael Jackson


Neil Armstrong


Dr. Oz


Nancy Ajram


Selena Gomez

and much more….

I’m so proud of my students they did an amazing job! Smile
