Tell me a Story

Boys and Girls, I would love to know what you did this weekend. Why not draw me a picture! Perhaps you went to the beach, or had a barbecue. When you have drawn your picture, tell mum or dad all about it. Mum or dad can write your story at the bottom of the page. 

Caterpillar rhymes and songs. The first one is to the tune-she’ll be coming round the mountain.

 

Story Discussion 

Parents - after the story has been read, ask your child to tell you what happened. 

Ask your child to tell you what happened first, what happened in the middle, and what happened at the end. 

Ask your child the following questions: Where was the egg? What did the caterpillar eat first? How did the caterpillar change into a butterfly? 

Ask your child the following questions: How did the egg get on to the leaf? What did the caterpillar eat to help him feel better after his stomach ache? 

Talk about what the caterpillar ate first, second, third, and so on. Ask what the caterpillar ate last? 

Why do you think the caterpillar got a stomach ache? 

Talk about how a caterpillar looks and how a butterfly looks. Talk about how they are alike and different. 

Talk about the words that name the butterfly life stages; egg, caterpillar (larva), chrysalis (cocoon), butterfly (adult). Find each stage in the book. 

Why not record or video your child retelling the story.

Hungry Caterpillar- Kim’s Game

Play Dough Caterpillars

We also used our dough to make some caterpillars. You could also use your dice and make it into a game! Roll your dice then make your caterpillar the same number of circles long. Why not make it even harder and use two colours to try to make a 2-colour pattern. 

Hungry Caterpillar Fruit Kebabs

We made fruit kebabs in nursery for snack on our pattern day and the children absolutely loved it. Why not give it a go. The children could even help cut the fruit. 
Benefits of Threading for Children. Improve fine motor skillsThreading can help to strengthen the small muscles in children's hands as they grasp different sized objects. The benefit of developing fine motor skills through threading is that it uses similar hand movements to gripping a large pencil.

Why not use a potato or spool to print your very own Hungry Caterpillar!
