The Hungry Caterpillar Drawing
Draw a tiny caterpillar.
Draw a big fat caterpillar.
Draw a beautiful butterfly.
Can you cut your drawings out and make them into puppets?
You could use them to retell the story.
Every day practice writing the 'curly caterpillar' letters - c o a d g f s q.
They all start in the same place.
Say the rhyme as you write.
c - curl around the caterpillar
o - all around the orange
a - round the apple, up and down the leaf
d - round the dinosaurs back, up his tall neck and down to his toes
g -around the girls face, down her hair and give her a curl
s - slither down the snake
f - down the stem and draw the leaves
q -round her head, up past her earring, down her hair and flick.
Draw each letter a few times. Make it fun by using different colour pens or pencils. Draw the letters in a shallow tray of sand or salt. Use a paintbrush and water to make the letters on concrete or a fence outside when it is dry. Chalk can also be used to practice writing.
